Wikipedia: Latke
A latke (Yiddish: לאַטקע‎; sometimes romanized latka, lit. “pancake"), is a type of potato pancake or fritter in Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine that is traditionally prepared to celebrate Hanukkah. Latkes can be made with ingredients other than potatoes including cheese and zucchini.

Wikipedia: Hash browns
Hash browns, also spelled hashed browns, are a popular American breakfast dish, consisting of finely chopped potatoes that have been fried until browned. Hash browns first started appearing on breakfast menus in New York City in the 1890s. Hash browns are a staple breakfast food at diners in North America, where they are often fried on a large common cooktop or grill.

Please stop calling Latkes “Jewish hash browns.” Latkes came first by hundreds of years, so hash browns are actually Latkes for goyim (non-Jews).

Traditional hash browns are made from grated potatoes fried in oil. For latkes you add egg and flour.
