Latkes are a tradional Chanukah treat. Latkes are shallow-fried pancakes of grated potato and egg, often flavored with grated onion  Latkes are traditionally eaten by Jews during the Chanukah festival, for the oil for cooking the latkes is reminiscent of the oil from the Chanukah story that kept the Second Temple of ancient Israel lit with a long-lasting 8 day flame that is highlighted miracle.
 
Chanukah -- the eight-day festival of light that begins on the eve of Kislev 25, this year corresponding to December 16th — celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materialism.  More than twenty-one centuries ago, the Holy Land was ruled by the Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks), who sought to forcefully Hellenize the people of Israel in the earliest recorded case of religious oppression. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to the service of G‑d. When they sought to light the Temple's menorah, they found only a single cruse of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks; miraculously, the one-day supply burned for eight days, until new oil could be prepared under conditions of ritual purity.

To commemorate and publicize these miracles, the sages instituted the festival of Chanukah. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting: a single flame on the first night, two on the second evening, and so on till the eighth night of Chanukah, when all eight lights are kindled.
