Giving Thanks with Latkes

Giving Thanks with Latkes

  For the first time in almost 100 years, and for the last time for roughly another 70,000, American Jews have a truly unique way to begin the holiday season. This year, Thanksgiving coincides with the first day of Hanukkah; lending itself to some of the more creative dishes we’ve encountered. With a holiday as special as this year’s “Thanksgivukkah”, why not try a new dish to add to your holiday table? Atlas Hotels is always interested in new, creative ways to add some spice to life. Here are some of our favorite recipes to try for this once in a lifetime holiday: 1) Pomegranate Sauce: Substitute the usual cranberry sauce for pomegranate. This is a wonderfully refreshing way to add some Israeli flair to the Thanksgiving meal. You can find a more detailed recipe (along with other ideas) here.   2) Chocolate Cranberry Cake: We love this rich cake for dessert. What makes it even more delectable is the gelt glaze drizzled on top! 3) Pumpkin Challah: Always a...

Favorites of the Israeli Winter

Favorites of the Israeli Winter

The beaches may not be buzzing, but there’s still plenty to explore this winter season while in Israel. Here are Atlas Hotels‘ recommendations for top activities in Israeli winters: 1) The Hanukkah season: The streets are lined with warm, gooey sufganiyot and, glistening menorot, and bright colors. Walking through the old city of Jerusalem at night is remarkable. Menorot brighten the streets and create a warm glow throughout the city. Each year in Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv, the city hosts a giant chanukiyah lighting ceremony. Cinema and Center Chic hotel guests have a front row seat to this epic party in the city’s center. Shalom Hotel & Relax, Melody, and ArtPlus guests aren’t too far either!   2) Sylvester: New Year’s in Israel is unlike other traditions. This secular holiday celebrates winter with a large feast between family and friends. Although Israel has its own new year’s (Rosh Hashana), this holiday is linked to the Gregorian calendar and gives people another reason to come together and celebrate the...

Thanksgivukkah: A Once in a Lifetime Holiday

Thanksgivukkah: A Once in a Lifetime Holiday

  For the first time in roughly 125 years, and for the last time in many more centuries to come, the first day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving land on the same day. This once in a lifetime melding lends itself to some of the most creative dishes we’ve heard of, as well as truly unique methods of celebration. From pumpkin kugel to cranberry sauce-filled sufganiyot, this is definitely one for the ages! Here in Israel, we are especially excited to see how many American Jews will celebrate this holiday. ‘Thanksgivukkah’ allows American Jews to recognize both aspects of their culture simultaneously—which many may not have the opportunity to otherwise experience on a regular basis. Like each of our hotels, we understand each guest is unique. Share your holiday pictures, recipes, and stories with us on our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ pages.

Hidden Gems in the Holy City

Hidden Gems in the Holy City

After visiting the holy sites in the epicenter of religion, there is still plenty to see that will awaken your senses. Haifa’s Bahai Gardens are famously known as the premier gardens in Israel. But did you know that you don’t need to travel all the way up north to see beautiful flora and greenery? Jerusalem boats its own botanical gardens full of both indigenous flowers and habitats representing plants from across the globe. Spread across 30-acres of land, and nestled among the hills of the old city, the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens is a beautiful way to escape the humming of the downtown areas. It’s a short 10 minute taxi ride (or 20 minutes of walking) from both Atlas Hotels in Jerusalem; the Arthur and Harmony hotels. Another treasure within the Old City that not many know of, is the weekly Night Spectacular show at the Tower of David. Using multiple light sources, image projections, and specially positioned loudspeakers, the old stone walls of the city become the canvas for a...
