While researching on jewish favorites for the season found this beautiful Star of David Pasta and thought would be a nice addition to the Hanukkah menu for us to learn more about this jewish tradition. I like learn from other religions as I have friends that practice and profess other beliefs. That helps me expand my knowledge and understand them better.

I think it is important to teach our children about other cultures and religions so that we become more inclusive and hold the hands of others that might not profess same beliefs by embracing their traditions. Food is a great way to teach while enjoying the Star of David Pasta. That could help to talk about what Hanukkah means and why is celebrated.

So cute! My family includes a pretty big range of different faiths, so I try to give my kids some exposure to them all. Even though we aren’t Jewish, we could totally eat Star of David pasta and talk about the symbolish.
