Technion students Eyal Cohen and Tomer Wassermann from the Mechanical Engineering faculty and Matan Orian and Dvir Dukhan of Industrial Engineering and Management take on the challenge to build a Rube Goldberg machine that lights the Chanukah menorah. Hanukkah is the holiday of miracles and here is another one.

That wasn't a bagel. That was a sufganiyah, a filled donut which is a traditional treat for Chanukah, along with the potato latkes. Sufganiyot (the plural) are deep fried, then injected with either custard or jelly and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. Super yummy are they!

Well, don’t blame her too much. They are actually a Sephardic treat and don’t come from the Ashkenaz tradition. Doesn’t matter much to me, I’ll take something yummy from the Sephardim any time. Their cooking is from heaven!

So THAT’S it!

Her Hebrew pronunciation was weird too. I learned Hebrew from Israeli Tapes and Records and spoke it “modern”. LOL.
Her way:
“Gut Shabbos’
“Mutzee” (Matzo)
“Schiksee” (Me)
