Sufganiyot

The smell of traditional Hanukkah sufganiyot has overtaken the Technology and Logistics Branch’s food preparation base in honor of Hanukkah, as the IDF's Food Center has obtained 385,000 of the classic jelly doughnuts to be distributed among all units of the IDF.

In addition, the IDF’s kitchens are preparing fresh sufganiyot for each unit, including both jelly—and chocolate-filled varieties.

“Every unit is entitled to order sufganiyot from the Food Center according to its needs, in addition to the work of kitchen managers,” said Warrant Officer Simo Cohen, head of the Nutrition Section of the Chief Logistics Officer’s Headquarters.

In line with the Logistics Corps and the Food Center’s new emphasis on a healthy diet, a new and healthier type of sufganiyah is now being made available. WO Cohen explained that this year the IDF’s kitchens will be able to use soy flour, “which in contrast to regular flour, prevents a little of the absorption of oil in the sufganiyah as it is fried.”

The eight-day holiday, which began on Saturday night (December 8), is celebrated widely throughout the IDF, with many units holding public candle-lighting ceremonies.
