Thanks to our partner the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Charlotte, DigitalNC has a wealth of information about how some Jewish North Carolinians celebrate the holidays, including Hanukkah, which begins on December 24th this year.
The Charlotte Jewish News documents stories from the Jewish community, especially events, awards, education, and holidays. The stories and advertisements date from the late 1970’s to 2013. They are full of photos, schedules, and recipes like this one for Creamy Broccoli Latkes. Community newspapers can be excellent windows into the holiday traditions of people across North Carolina.
In addition to newspapers, the Jewish Historical Society has also contributed a number of images documenting celebrations and traditions of all kinds in the Jewish community.
