“Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” (2020) centers Hanukkah traditions and their symbolism.
Where to watch: Hallmark Channel or Amazon Prime Video
Synopsis: Mia Kirshner stars as Christina, a restaurant owner who discovers her Jewish ancestry through a DNA test and connects with her newfound Jewish family, the Bermans, over Hanukkah. There’s also the matter of David (Ben Savage), a restaurant critic who gave Christina’s lasagna a less-than-enthusiastic review but is a fixture at the Bermans’ Hanukkah gatherings as a family friend.
What critics say: “Those seeking a purely Hanukkah-focused film with little mention of Christmas won’t find that here. But for those open to a movie that places Hanukkah at the center of a story about family, hope, and miracles, ‘Love, Lights, Hanukkah!’ might just be the applesauce to your latke,” wrote Talia Lakritz of Insider.
