Jelly Doughnut




A sufganiyah (Hebrew: plural, sufganiyot: ) is a round jelly doughnut eaten in Israel on the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.

The doughnut is deep-fried, filled with jelly or custard, and then topped with powdered sugar. At Hanukkah, Jews observe the custom of eating fried foods in commemoration of the miracle associated with the Temple oil.

Tonight is the 5th night of Hanukkah.
