Things to Do for Hannukah: From a New Novel to a New Radio Station

by Barry (writer), Los Angeles, December 13, 2006


Many Angelenos will start celebrating Hannukah this coming Friday. Here are a few interesting ideas for things to do.

For those of you who feel like brushing up on your holiday cooking (and being a little of a couch latke), you might want to check out the Food Network's Sara's Secrets on Thursday December 14th at 10:00am. The show will offer some easy recipes, including Red-Wine Braised Beef Brisket with Horseradish Sauce and Aunt Rifka's Apple Fritters.

For those of you caught in 405 traffic on your way to the menorah lighting, you can get into the holiday spirit by tuning into XM Satellite Radio's Radio Hannukah. It airs for the entire duration of the holiday on XM channel 108. It will feature nightly broadcasts of the traditional Hannukah candlelight blessings, plus contemporary and traditional Jewish music.

And what if you get a bookstore gift card as one of your Hannukah gifts? If you wait just a few days, you'll be able to get your hands on the latest biblical novel from Israel. The Garden of Ruth by Eva Etzioni-Halevy and published by Plume/Penguin hits the bookshelves on December 26th, but can already be pre-ordered online at such sites as The book not only features romance and mystery, but also an important holiday message of interfaith tolerance. You can get more info about it at
