Thanksgiving in Israel - Turkey, Hummus, Challlah, and Pumpkin Flavored Krembo


The menu may be a little different, but the Thanksgiving spirit is the same. The American holiday is observed in Israel wherever you can find a group of American olim.

Yankee Doodle playing in the background and tables laden with turkey (which has to be specially ordered in advance), hummus, challah, and pumpkin flavored Krembo (the chocolate marshmallow treat that's popular all over the country.) Cranberries can be hard to find,

Today's video clip is from a party in 2014 hosted by the Post-Aliyah department of Nefesh b'Nefesh, the organization that brings planeloads of new olim to Israel each year. If you're going to be in the United States tomorrow, try to have them in mind when you indulge in the traditional American feast.

Enjoy!
