Lynn, a community member, made a challah menorah! She used Yael’s Challah recipe that is egg- and dairy-free. She twisted the dough into ropes and shaped by hand to create the “flames.”

Looking for a latke (potato pancake) recipe? Try this one that is egg- and dairy-free and can be made with or without wheat or gluten.

For sufganiyot (jelly donuts), try Yael's Vegan Jelly Donuts or Kathy P’s Gluten-Free Raised Doughnuts.
