What’s the top Jewish food? Enter our bracket challenge


Follow the St. Louis Jewish Light on Instagram

We are participating in “March Madness” for the first time ever. No, The St. Louis Jewish Light is not becoming a college basketball site; we’re making our own March Madness tournament. What is the best Jewish food?

We ranked 32 foods, from bagels (our no. 1 seed) to hamantaschen (no. 13) to gefilte fish (no. 30).

In a series of matchups over the next week and a half on our Instagram stories, followers will get to vote on their favorite Jewish food. Round one includes tough choices which include: Pickles or hummus? Falafel or cholent? Babka or honey cakes? Will chopped liver upset latkes?

Here’s how to play along.
