3. Latke Recipes
Get creative with your latkes. Smitten Kitchen has a great roundup of recipe variants. But if you don’t feel like cooking, head to Star and Shamrock for the Latke Madness sandwich, a Jewish-Irish riff on KFC’s Double Down in which the latkes take the place of bread and Reuben fixings fill the middle.

4. Jewish Film Festival
The Washington Jewish Film Festival turns 21 when it opens December 2, and we’re particularly excited to see The Debt. The new Helen Mirren/Sam Worthington thriller, December 4 at 7 at the AFI Silver Theatre, is about Mossad agents hunting a Nazi war criminal, and it’s directed by Shakespeare in Love’s John Madden. We’re also pumped for Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story, at the same location December 5 at 4:30. Tickets ($10 to $26) for all screenings are available here.

5. Star of David Cupcake Wrappers
Put a Jewish twist on Washington’s cupcake craze with these adorable navy Star of David cupcake wrappers. Exactly what you bake in them is up to you, but white buttercream frosting makes for a nice color contrast. Paper Orchid Stationery, $25 for a pack of $25.
