Avodah celebrates Ḥanukkah at Our Place

CBC’s Khalil Akhtar pursues the perfect latke!Avodah was thrilled to celebrate Ḥanukkah at Our Place by sponsoring our 5th annual Big Latkelicious Lunch at Our Place on the second day of Ḥanukkah, December 13, 2017. Our magnificent Avodah volunteers, led by Daryl Levine, fried, shvitzed and served more than 600 latkes, with The Klez playing their freilach klezmer music and Bev Merson conducting her popular dreidel competition.

It was a joyful way to share our Ḥanukkah spirit, light and latkes with our good friends at Our Place, who welcomed us (and our latkes) into their kitchen and dining room with so much warmth and excitement.
