Hanukkah Decorations Checklist

Menorah and Hanukkah Gelt

Happy Hanukkah FH Readers!! It’s time to dust off that menorah and start decorating for the Holiday! So whether you plan to celebrate at home or host a Holiday dinner that includes Jewish friends, here is a checklist for everything you will need to celebrate properly!

  1. A Menorah {A proper one should have nine branches – one for each of the eight nights of Hanukkah and then a ‘shamash’, the center candle usually, which is used for lighting the other candles}
  2. Hanukkah candles. {Make sure they fit in the menorah you own!!} Streit’s, a well-known Judaica company, is a popular go-to.
  3. Hanukkah Gelt, aka chocolate coins. A bag per person or enough to have one at each person’s table setting is how many you should buy.
  4. Dreidels, Hanukkah spinning tops, are cute for decorations as well as Hanukkah games post- dinner.
  5. Anything blue, white, and silver for decor – from table cloths, to napkins, to flowers, these are the colors dedicated to the Holiday!
  6. Optional: Make a traditional Hanukkah food like Latkahs, a potato pancake, or Noodle Kugel {see my low-fat recipe here!}. Place Latkahs alongside small bowls of apple sauce and sour cream for dipping!
