Why Do We Eat Donuts During Hanukkah?

laitman_627_1Question: Why do we eat donuts (Sufganiyot) during Hanukkah?

Answer: Firstly, it is because they are round. The circle represents completeness.

Oil is something airy, from which comes the Light. After all, the Light was always in the lantern, rising from the oil burning on the wick.

During Hanukkah, we eat sweet donuts because this holiday symbolizes the way out of the bitterness of this world into spiritual sweetness. This is a sweet holiday.
