In the
Goldstein-Goren Series in American Jewish History 
In New Orleans, Hanukkah means decorating your door with amenorah made o hominy grits. Latkes in Texas are seasoned withcilantro and cayenne pepper. Children in Cincinnati sing Hanuk-kah songs and eat oranges and ice cream. While each traditionsprings rom its own unique set o cultural reerences, what tiesthem together is that they all celebrate a holiday that is dierentin America than it is any place else. For the past two hundredyears, American Jews have been transorming the ancient holidayo Hanukkah rom a simple occasion into something grand. Eachyear, as they retell its story and enact its customs, they bring theirever-changing perspectives and desires to its celebration. Provid-ing an attractive alternative to the Christian dominated December,rabbis and lay people alike have addressed contemporary hopesby ashioning an authentically Jewish estival that blossomed intheir American world.The ways in which Hanukkah was reshaped by American Jews re-veals the changing goals and values that emerged among dierentcontingents each December as they conronted the reality o livingas a religious minority in the United States. Bringing together cler-gy and laity, artists and businessmen, teachers, parents, and chil-dren, Hanukkah has been a dynamic orce or both stability andchange in American Jewish lie. The holiday’s distinctive transor-mation rom a minor estival to a major occasion that looms largein the American Jewish psyche is a marker o American Jewishlie. Drawing on a varied archive o songs, plays, liturgy, sermons,and a range o illustrative material, as well as developing portraitso various communities, congregations, and rabbis,
Hanukkah in America 
reveals how an almost orgotten estival became the mostvisible o American Jewish holidays.
