Many years ago, my old boss had me preparing for her annual Hannukah party. Although I was responsible for keeping her and her kids fed, there were some traditional recipes she never shared with me ~ how to make chicken soup or latkes. Finally one year she handed me a recipe and asked me to make latkes for 35 guests ~ a LOT of work! Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
*10 pounds white potatoes (finely processed like applesauce consistency) *1 huge sweet onion (processed WITH the potatoes)
*6 large eggs (beaten) *about 1/2 cup of Matzoh meal or flour (ONLY use if batter is watery)
*Mix all ingredients in a large non-metalic bowl (metal makes the potatoes turn dark faster) *Stir in matzoh mean or flour IF the potato mixture is too watery or runny…the mixture should almost be like a nice thick applesauce consistency *Heat about an inch of canola or other vegetable oil in a HOT (very hot) fry pan or skillet.
*Put a heaping serving spoon size amount of mixture into the hot oil (you can usually fit five or six spoonfuls in a single large (12 inch) skillet/fry pan) and flatten out as it starts to fry.
*10 pounds of potatoes makes approximately 90 ~ 100 latkes, and if you eat them as a main course (which you can do if you have salad on the side) this will feed 10 -12 people. OMGOSH they are sooooo fine!
I was soon learning quotes not nearly as enticing as a delicious recipe ~ oh, the Latkes were marvelous! Anyhow, I am including some paintings of Jew in European history.
QUOTES BY JEWS ABOUT JEWS
"The modern Jew is the product of the Talmud." ~ Michael Rodkinson, in preface of Babylonian Talmud, page XI.
In 1315, "to the common clamor of the people", Louis X granted a charter to the Jews. Toulouse, Bibliothèque municipale.
"Anti-Semitism is so instinctive that it may quite simply be called one of the primal instincts of mankind, one of the important instincts by which the race helps to preserve itself against total destruction. I cannot emphasize the matter too strongly.
Anti-Semitism is not, as Jews have tried to make the world believe, an active prejudice. It is a deeply hidden instinct with which every man is born. He remains unconscious of it, as of all other instincts of self preservation, until something happens to awaken it.
Just as when something flies in the direction of your eyes, the eyelids close instantly and of their own accord. So swiftly and surely is the instinct of anti-Semitism awakened in a man. There is not a single instance when the Jews have not fully deserved the bitter fury of their persecutors." ~ Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live, (1934), p. 64
"We, the Jews, are a people ~ one people. When we sink, we become revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of a revolutionary party; when we rise, there arises also our terrible power of the purse.” ~ Theodore Herzl, The Jewish State, 1896
"The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart's blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we observe ~ whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, or merely spasmodic sentimentalists ~ we follow the Talmud. It is our common law." ~ Herman Wouk, This is My God.
"What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his (the Jew's) religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash!" ~ Karl Marx, founder of Communism, quoted in the British Guardian, July-August, 1924.
"Jewish history has been tragic to the Jews and no less tragic to the neighboring nations who have suffered them. Our major vice of old as of today is parasitism. We are a people of vultures living on the labor and good fortune of the rest of the world." ~ Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live, page 18.
"The world revolution which we will experience will be exclusively our affair and will rest in our hands. This revolution will tighten the Jewish domination over all other people." ~ Le Peuple Juif, February 8, 1919.
"The governments of the peoples included in this world republic, with the aid of the victorious proletariat, all will fall without difficulty into Jewish hands. Private property will then be strangled by the Jewish directors, who will administer the state patrimony everywhere. Thus the promise of the Talmud will be fulfilled, that is, the promise that the Jews, at the arrival of the Messiah, will possess the key to the wealth of all the peoples of the earth." ~ Baruch Levy to Karl Marx, published in the Rothschild controlled La Revue de Paris, June 1, 1928.
"Nations will gather together to bring their homage to the people of God; the whole fortune of nations will pass into the hands of the Jewish people, they will march behind the Jewish people, in chains as captives, and will prostrate before it."~ Isador Loeb, Le Probleme Juif.
"In everything, we are destroyers ~ even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief...We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands." ~ Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, pages 152, 155, and 147
"There is much in the fact of Bolshevism (Communism) itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists, in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism." ~ The Jewish Chronicle, April 4, 1919.
"Jew and Gentile are two worlds, between you Gentiles and us Jews there lies an unbridgeable gulf. There are two life forces in the world: Jewish and Gentile. I do not believe that this primal difference between Gentile and Jew is reconcilable..." ~ Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, page 9.
"The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world." ~ The American Hebrew, September 10, 1920
"You cannot be English Jews. We are a race, and only as a race can we perpetuate. Our mentality is of a Hebraic character, and differs from that of an Englishman. Enough subterfuges! Let us assert openly that we are International Jews." ~ Gerald Soman, Chairman of the World Jewry Fellowship, in its official manifesto, January 1, 1935.
"Hitler was right in one thing. He calls the Jewish people a race, and we are a race." ~ Rabbi Stephen Wise, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, June 13, 1938.

We have been at the bottom of not merely the latest great war, but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone." ~ Marclis Eli Ravage, Century Magazine, February, 1926
