Here’s a list of recipes that are perfect for this year’s Thanksgiving-Hanukkah convergence.

Way back in 2013, American Jews got the ultimate holiday gift: the convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. Sweet potato kugel, cranberry filled sufganiyot, turkey-shaped challah and, of course, the menurkey (Turkey menorah) became delicious, beautiful expressions of our Americanness and Jewishness. We were able to gather with family and get double our return on that family time: We did two holidays in one.

This year, Thanksgiving is Thursday, Nov. 25 and Hanukkah starts almost immediately after, on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 28. It’s not quite another Thanksgivukkah, but it’s close. Add the pandemic into the mix, and the fact that many families may not have taken the opportunity to gather together, and this year’s holiday weekend presents a very special chance to celebrate twice as hard.

If you are as excited as we are, here is a list of recipes perfect for this year’s Thanksgiving-Hanukkah convergence. Start planning your menu!
