Latkes and Light: A Chanukah Delight

Sunday, December 15, 2019 • 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
918 Bathurst Street

Join the Morris Winchevsky School and the United Jewish People’s Order for a secular celebration of Chanukah. This family-friendly event features a Chanukah Shpiel (play), Candle Lighting, Chanukah Games & Crafts, Dreydls & Gelt, and, of course, Latkes & Sufgniot (doughnuts). Hot and cold beverages will also be served — potluck lunch.

At Chanukah, the Morris Winchevsky School (our secular Sunday school) holds a Chanukah party that is open to all.

At the Morris Winchevsky School, we approach Chanukah as we do other Jewish holidays: from a secular and social justice perspective. We retell the story of the Maccabees, exploring historic struggles within Jewish communities and the meaning of resistance then and now. The MWS students perform a Chanukah shpiel – a performance piece based on the themes of Chanukah. There are games and activities for all ages, candle lighting, sufganiyot (doughnuts), and of course, latkes! Hot and cold beverages will also be available. Bring a dish for a fabulous potluck lunch.

$5 per person, $15 for families

Morris Winchevsky's students are free.
