In honour of the Jewish holiday of #Chanukah now, I'm going to make a THREAD here with some powerful Chanukah images (c/- @yadvashem) from 'Before, During and After the #Holocaust'.

Starting with this, perhaps most powerful one: Kiel, Germany (1932)

@yadvashem Berlin, Germany, 1930s, a lit Hanukkah candelabrum on #Hanukkah. 3/

Happy #Hanukkah!

The thing about Hanukkah is that it celebrates a pivotal moment for anyone who follows an Abrahamic religion. Had the Maccabean revolt failed, Judaism might have been extinguished and with it, any chance of Christianity or Islam ever emerging.
Also: the reason the diff in spelling of #Hanukkah/Chanukkah is because the Hebrew letter it begins with - ח - was originally pronounced as a guttoral H sound, the equivalent of the Arabic ح. Modern Hebrew pronounces ח like the Arabic خ (Ch). English has neither sound so: H.
If you want to know the original beginning sound for #Hanukkah ask an Arab to say Habibi. The H sounds like what ח sounded like in Biblical/Ancient Hebrew. Or better yet, ask a Yemenite Jew to say Hanukkah.

If @Amazon‘s serious about winning the @DeptofDefense’s #JEDI cloud contract, one thing they could do to show even the tiniest concern for our #NATSEC is this: give #Amazon customers a way to filter out products that are #MadeInChina. #China’s our adversary… & their #1 supplier.
… if you care about #Amazon’s mammoth dealings w/ #China, or if your conscience nags you for buying cheap Chinese stuff online, one solution is this: use @AmazonSmile to donate the proceeds from your purchases to @VoCommunism, which honors/advocates for the victims of Communism.
… if you, like me, try to shop consciously & strategically, you can hit the Chinese regime by also buying goods that are #MadeInIndia. #India’s products are far superior to #China’s, & you can rest easy knowing that you aren’t helping fund #ConcentrationCamps & #Genocide.

1. With #Thanksgiving and #Hanukkah around the corner, your mind may be turning toward #cooking up something delicious for family and friends. And the best way to make great food is to start with great ingredients. To that end, let's make something delicious: schmaltz.
2. The word "schmaltz" comes from the #Yiddish "shmalts" (שמאַלץ), which in turn comes from the German "schmelzen," meaning "to melt." So we're going to be rendering chicken fat down to use as a delicious cooking fat for a variety of holiday dishes.
3. To begin with, you're going to need a source for your fat. The easiest place to get it is from chicken skin and the fatty deposits that are usually located around the tail right inside the stuffing cavity. There are a couple of ways to get enough skin and fat to make a batch.
