Hanukkah is the festival of lights, and it’s also a festival of oil. For this holiday, Jews celebrate the miracle of a tiny bit of oil lasting eight long nights with family gatherings, food, and games. Observers whip up dishes such as potato pancakes and jelly donuts and play dreidel, spinning for a handful of gelt.
Get into the Hanukkah sprit with the following delicious vegan dishes and cruelty-free holiday gift ideas:
Devour Jelly Donuts

Prepare Egg-Free Potato Pancakes
You can go with a classic savory latke, or make sweet potato latkes for a fun twist—egg-free, of course! Serve your latkes with applesauce and store-bought dairy-free sour cream, or make your own.
Give Guilt-Free Gelt
