Your At-Home Hanukkah Guide

Hanukkah celebrations are going to look different this year as families stay home and safe, but you can still make the most of it with the crafts, recipes and events in our at-home Hanukkah Guide.

Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights that commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple, kicks off at sundown on December 10, 2020, and like other holidays this year, your celebrations might look a bit different than last year or the year before. With the coronavirus pandemic still at large, many families are opting to stay away from large events and extended family gatherings — but just because you’re at home this year, doesn’t mean you can’t have a fantastic Hanukkah in 2020.

If you’re looking for ways to kick your traditional festivities into high gear this year, our at-home Hanukkah guide has you covered with fun crafts, recipes and even a few events and activity ideas.

The food

A traditional Hanukkah celebration wouldn’t be complete without brisket, latkes, kugel and more. While many families might have recipes handed down generation to generation, 2020 offers a great chance for families to mix up their Hanukkah menu a bit. Here are a few ideas for inspiration.

Hanukkah activities

Menorah lightings with your families and special prayers are a must for this holiday, but there’s lots of fun activities you can do beyond that, too. Check out this list of Hanukkah happenings in 2020 if you feel like venturing out or make your own fun at home with these ideas.

Happy Hanukkah!
