Potato Latkes
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Jacob loved this time of year. He enjoyed celebrating Hanukkah with his family. He loved listening to his grandfather tell the stories about why his family lights the menorah for eight days each year. He liked helping light the menorah each night, too.
2     Jacob was excited about receiving gelt, or money, from his grandfather as part of the celebration as well. He also liked receiving small gifts from his parents each night after the candles were lit.
3     No celebration would be complete without good food and games. During Hanukkah, Jacob enjoyed playing games with a spinning top called a dreidel. Most of all, Jacob loved the food his mother made during Hanukkah.
