I can smell it…
I can hear them…
I know what’s coming…
It’s latkas for dinner tonight!


This food fills the air with sweetness
And joy, celebration and noise
All the family around to join in Hannukah abound


Come dip in apple sauce
Soak in sour cream
Potato pancakes never tasted so wonderful it seems


Together we remember the days of our past
Eating and singing wishing this night
Would be forever and endlessly last


Eating latkas will hold our memories so dear
Of our gatherings with loved ones
Talking, sharing, and caring with great cheer


Although it is just a potato cooked in a special way
It really is so much more in spirit
During this time and unique day


It’s about tradition and family
Our people, our time, our place in the
Present, past, and future, our lifeline.
