My mom suits up for latke duty in her patterned plastic apron, a tea towel slung over her let shoulder for good measure. I whirl a boatload of russet potatoes with some cooking onions in the food processor and then stir in eggs and lour, salt and pepper. With the potato pancake bater ready, she takes the helm of her electric frying pan, where she will remain for the next hour or so, for a Hanukkah tradition as predictable as the lighting of the menorah.

I think it was soon ater hearing my stirring solo of “Jesus Christ Our Saviour” in the kindergarten Christmas pageant that my mom took it upon herself to peel 50 pounds of potatoes and lug her oversized avocado green electric frying pan to Lillian Public School. Each Hanukkah thereater (until my three brothers and I had graduated), she went from class to class, cooking up fresh, hot latkes whilst retelling the tale of the Miracle of Light. It’s a ritual that she continues at our cotage on Lake Simcoe, Ont., now with her grown children and six grandchildren underfoot. Geting us all together means double the latkes, but also double the fun. Get frying, Mom!
