If Brisket is a traditional dish for Hanukkah then dairy cannot be a key component. If dairy is a key component then brisket cannot be eaten. At least not among traditional jews. The laws of Kosher forbid the eating of meat and milk in the same meal. I'm an orthodox jew and I've never heard of either of these traditions.

I know next-to nothing about Jewish customs... that kind of surprised me! I knew about the meat-dairy thing, but I was surprised by the "dairy is important" thing.

And yes, dairy and meat cannot be served or consumed together. In fact, you need to wait 6 hours between eating the two....

i thought the dairy and meat just had to be on separate plates/not touching. i could be wrong though.
