Did you enjoy Latkes for Hanukkah? Did you also have isfengs for Hanukkah?

If you have no idea that an isfeng is a crispy doughnut treat that Sephardic Jews enjoy for Hanukkah, it’s time to learn that there are many Jewish customs, traditions, and foods not only those that come from Eastern Europe.
