Adult Hanukkah Party

Saturday, December 14 at 6:15 pm

Come and get in the mood for the holiday! The event will start at 6:30 pm with appetizers, followed by dinner.  The menu includes:  roasted chicken, potato latkes and applesauce, green beans, field greens with poached pears, and dessert. BYOB (kosher only). The cost of the dinner is $18.50 per person.

At 8:00 pm, we will watch the film “Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas.” The movie tells the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin, Mel Torme, Jay Livingston, Ray Evans, and Johnny Marks, who wrote the soundtrack to the world’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing look at the 20th century North American immigrant experience and the extraordinary outburst of musical energy from the children of those immigrants.
