Chanukah Latke Bag
Chanukah is a Jewish celebration which commemorates the re-dedication of the Temple by the Maccabees, and the miracle of a single jar of oil lasting for eight days, lighting the Temple's Menorah (seven branched candelabrum).
Chanukah is also called the Festival of Lights and Feast of Dedication.
During Chanukah, it is customary to eat foods fried in oil. Potato latke (pancakes) are a Chanukah tradition.
This year in Melbourne Mazon Australia's goal is to distribute 150 "Latke Bags" to vulnerable families to allow them to make latkes for their Chanukah celebrations.
If you would like to distribute "Latke Bags" in your community, please contact us.
If you would like to add light to someone's Chanukah feast, and help us achieve our goal, please donate here.
