Friday Favorites

With Chanukah now upon us (December 11-19, 2009), surrenderedsoul is sharing her Friday favorites. Thank you!!
This site is great for historical information on Chanukah, as well as fun things like songs, recipes etc. It showcases some videos as well. But it isn't just a great site for Chanukah but for all things Jewish. It breaks all the holidays down into different sections and is a wealth of information.

This site is a bit more religious in it's design and information but is a good source of knowledge for Chanukah facts, Jewish Law, and over all discussions about this holiday and all things Jewish. it even has a section where you can ask a Rabbi any questions you might have that have gone unanswered.
If you are looking for a website to send religious gifts pertaining to Chanukah or other Jewish holidays, this site is helpful. They have some keepsake items for sale, as well as practical items such as kiddush cups, Challah Boards, and Mezuzahs. A little on the pricey side, but their quality is good and customer service is excellent when needing to return an item.
If you are in need of a website to explain Chanukah to children and a place where they can learn while having fun playing games about Chanukah, then this is the site for you. Even my 23 month old daughter enjoys going to this site because the characters are cute. It would also be great for children ages 3 to 10 who can work more independently.

My Jewish
This site is nice in that if you provide them your email address they will email you a new recipe weekly for your favorite Jewish recipes. As it gets closer to each Jewish holiday the recipes pertain to that holiday. Over the years I have gotten some really great recipes from this site. But what I like most about it is that you just sign up and they do the rest. I don't have to search for anything or try and think up a new dish to make. It is provided for me via email and I just have to open, read, shop, and cook.
