Hanukkah Site — Jewish Site of the Week

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

We like this site for two reasons — it helps us find good deals on Hanukkah gifts, and it has more latke recipes than we could possibly make in 10 years.

Who knew that you could make “carrot-almond” or “corn and red pepper” latkes!?! My, what a world we live in!

For its creative list of latke recipes, fun family activity ideas and a list of great gift deals updated daily, we name Hanukkah Site as our site of the week!

Hanukah can be spelled 17 different ways!

It’s actually a hebrew word.  It means “dedication”.  But, as they say, ask three Jews a question and you’ll get four opinions, or, in this case, 17.

We did some sluething and found, on of all places, a quiz that spelled them all out:

Chanuccah, Channuka, Channukah, Chanuka, Chanukkah, Chanuko, Hannuka, Hannukah, Hanuka, Hanukkah, Hanukka, Hannukka, Kanukkah, Khannuka, Khannukah, Khanukkah, Khanukkah.

Not sure what the qualifications are for one spelling being “correct” and another not, but there you go.  Happy early Khannukkah!
