Donuts or Pizza?


 Donuts or Pizza?


In Shulchan Aruch, there is no mention of eating foods fried in oil on Chanukah .(Latkes & donuts etc.)

In Shulchan Aruch (Rema) it does say to eacheese on Chanukah.

Probably the first & only מקור (source) for Donuts on Chanukah is from a copy of a כתב יד (manuscript) that  Rav Y.M. Toledano z"l found. Somehow  the location of his find is unknown now.

Rav Toledano was a Rov in Tel Aviv & also the minister of religion in Ben Gurion's Government.

In his Sefer שריד ופליט, he quotes from a כתב יד of R. Maimon (Rambam's father) where he mentions the Minhag of donuts on Chanukah.

I am not sure if Rav Toledano himself was convinced of this כתב יד to be authentic.

Donuts or Pizza
It seems, that the מסורה of our mothers (fried foods) has precdence over הלכה in שלחן ערוך (cheese)
