KADIMA, ISRAEL - DECEMBER 6: Fresh oil-fried doughnuts, called sufganiyot in Hebrew, are dusted with icing sugar before going on display at the Roladin bakery December 6, 2006 in Kadima in central Israel. In Jewish tradition, it is customary to eat the doughnuts and other foods fried in oil during the upcoming eight-day festival of Hanukkah. Also known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah commemorates the re-dedication of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem in 165 BC following the victory of the Jewish Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire when there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day but miraculously, the oil burned for eight days.
