Defying the government with sufganiot

Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman probably gave a huge boost to the nation’s bakeries when he recently urged the public not to eat sufganiot, the often-fried doughnuts that are traditionally enjoyed on Hanukka.

While some who are careful with calories may heed the minister’s request, it is doubtful his warning was actually news to anyone. Sufganiot were fattening before Litzman, and they will be fattening when he is a distant memory.
