There’s almost no time to transition between turkey and latkes this year. Whether you’re ready to rock or simply lighting candles at home, here are eight great ideas to take you through Hanukkah.

1. National Menorah Lighting
Kick off your Hanukkah with the National Menorah Lighting at the Ellipse December 1 at 4 pm. Free tickets, available by lottery here or by calling 202-332-5600, get you access to latkes and doughnuts and get you closer to performances by Itzhak Perlman, the US Navy Band, and the Three Cantors. Standing room is also available.
2. Shop Hanukkah Supplies
Need a new menorah? Great candles to match? Something to up the stakes in a game of dreidel? The DC Jewish Community Center’s Abramson Family Foundation Judaica Gift and Bookstore is having a Hanukkah Extravaganza from November 23 through December 3.
