It's All About The Latkes

Happy Hanukkah everyone! Time to light those candles and get down to some serious latke eating. When we say we got 99.9% of the Jews living in Chennai together for tonight's Hanukkah ceremony, that's no exaggeration. There were probably a few Jewish expats hidden among the 8 million folks who live in Chennai, but we're sure we rounded up a majority. Still not a minyan. But a latke party nonetheless!

Making the golden stars of the meal. Wait, we need to light the candles first! You gotta have the kids take the lead. Well, maybe next year one of the little ones will be brave enough.

Consulting an iPad for the proper prayers. Where's the iHanukkah app? Eating commences. Nothing like homemade latkes and applesauce in South India to keep traditions alive. Chicken cutlets, green beans and a salad seal the meal.

Happy Hanukkah!
