Make Your Volunteering Count, And Coming Together For The Latke-Hamantash Debate

Dec 7, 2017

It's the holiday season once again, when many of us look to donate some time to a worthwhile cause. Today, we ask representatives of local non-profits what makes a great seasonal or year-round volunteer, and how you can have the most impact when you give back to the community. Then, learn about a debate that has been raging since the 1940s — what is the better winter holiday snack; the latke or the hamantash? It may sound like apples and oranges, but the Hanukkah potato pancake and the Purim stuffed cookie square off year after year to help debaters hone their craft.

The Ruth Fredman Cernea Great Latke Hamantash Debate will be held at White Theatre, on the Jewish Community Campus at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 10.  For more information, visit
