December 8, 2012, Saturday, Rebba Raine and the HaShem’s House Family (Ian -Rebba’s son- is coming for the holiday all the way from Bound Brook, NJ.) light the first candle of Hanukah on multiple menorahs, eat lots of fried foods and potato latkes (pancakes) which Rebba Raine makes from scratch!  This year she plans to make some healthy sweet potato latkes as well as homemade applesauce!  (If you don’t know why we eat so many fried foods on Chanukah* ask Rebba Raine.)

December 11, 2012,  Tuesday, Rebba Raine, Maggida of Austin, tells a Hanukah story @ the Central Texas Storyteller’s Guild Holiday Party.

* The English spelling of Hebrew and Yiddish words sometimes is confusing as different spellings are acceptable.  So the holiday where we light the menorah could be spelled Chanukah or Hanukah.  The day of rest is spelled either Shabbos, Shabbas or Shabbat
