Six Ways to Celebrate Hanukkah in Metro Phoenix

Hanukkah (or Chanukah) -- the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights -- begins at sundown on Saturday, December 8, this year and ends on Sunday, December 16. If you're planning a special feast to kick off or end the holiday, there are several places in town cooking up Jewish specialties to help you do just that. Even if you aren't Jewish, it's a great time to enjoy latkes (potato pancakes), matzo ball soup, and jelly donuts.
