Celebrate the miracle of Chanukah with the warmth of our community.

The evening will include:

Latke tasting contest

Opportunities to raise money for Israel

Fun for all ages. No charge. All are welcome.

Bring a batch of latkes!

We’re having latke tasting contest, so whip out your best latke recipe and bring a batch of 2-dozen (cut into quarters) to share.

You’ll have the chance to win bragging rights by winning a Judge’s Choice or People’s Choice award. Our panel of tasting judges will be Howard Behnken, David Shapendonk, and Marla Rubin. The People’s Choice award goes to the winner who steals the taste buds of all congregants.

Good luck to all!

Shop and raise money for Israel!

Sharon and Joel Krischer’s daughter, Dena Karsenty, will be selling items from her online clothing and accessory boutique, Poppy Lane. Items featured will be from Israeli designer Shlomi and LA designer Oliff bet. Dena can also take requests for made to order necklaces and rings! All proceeds will go to benefit our KM Israel Fundraising Initiative.
