What are your plans for Chanukah?
To light the Menorah.November 8, 2009 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #910988mazal77Participant
to light the menorah for eight nights, adding a new one for each day.November 8, 2009 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #910989cantoresqMember
To light the menorahNovember 8, 2009 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #910990
It seems we have a consensus here. May I add that in addition to lighting my menorah I intend to eat sufganiyot. (Had a sneak preview the other day. You can’t get sufganiyot that good anywhere else in the world.)November 8, 2009 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #910991
what about latkes? sufganiot? gelt for the kiddies? a few games of draydel?November 8, 2009 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #910992
What about a Chanukah party? Who would you invite? What would you make? And since we are in the topic of Chanuka. Did you ever hear of a costum of lighting an extra light from the beginning? Is that mutar?November 8, 2009 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #910993
I would invite President Obama and his family, along with Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family. Maybe I would also invite King Abdullah and Mahmoud Abbas,if they were free. We could have a nice chat over latkes and Macabee beer.November 8, 2009 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #910994bein_hasdorimParticipant
ronrsr: on that note, who do you suppose Obama will invite this year to the
White House to light the menorah?
1)Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Y”SV
2)Khaled Mashal Y”SV
3)Mahmoud Zahar YS”VNovember 9, 2009 12:27 am at 12:27 am #910995goody613Member

goody613; Good one! that is more realistic. 🙂November 9, 2009 6:05 am at 6:05 am #910997
ok, maybe I would have them come to my house a few days before Chanukah, so I could suggest some better choices for menorah lighter.
I would not invite any of your proposed menorah lighters. Though I am usually very open-minded, and believe in hospitality, I have alerted Hamas that none of their members are welcome at my house at any time, under any circumstances. Same to leaders of “evil axis” countries. I have to draw the line somewhere.November 9, 2009 10:20 am at 10:20 am #910999A600KiloBearParticipant
I think that for Chanukah, Barack Saddam Hussein Obama will visit Nidal Malik Hasan (if he has not peygered by then) and the two will light an electric menorah (with green lights to symbolize Islam) at Hasan YMS’s bedside.
Last time I checked, Mahmoud Abbas YMS is a leader of an evil axis entity (albeit not a country). He is also a Shoah denier who never repudiated his thesis or dissertation or whatever he wrote denying the Shoah. So, if you invite him, invite David Irving YMS as well.November 9, 2009 11:25 am at 11:25 am #911001PosterMember
Back on topice, plans for Chanukah…I hope to make a chanukah supper for my family and invite some realtives to share the light!November 9, 2009 2:34 pm at 2:34 pm #911002noitallmrParticipant
Did anyone here see that video of last years Chanukah in the white house with the Kol Zimra choir and the menorah lighting??? I thought it was really beautiful- a true friend to the Jewish nation…George- we miss you!November 9, 2009 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #911004jphoneMember
I think the Hazkeni Voices would be an appropriate choice to sing Haneros Hallelu at the White House this year.November 9, 2009 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #911005November 10, 2009 2:44 am at 2:44 am #911006goody613Member

I think Mod 99 is still on the couch from last year’s sufganiyot. He should wake up right before chanuka.November 11, 2009 5:20 am at 5:20 am #911011YW Moderator-99Member
