December 21st: Chanukah Evening to be presented by David Bleiman and Elaine Samuel: ‘This reminds me of…’

Food and memories: a participative entertainment by members of the ‘Lit’. Elaine writes ‘There may be a particular Jewish dish or meal that is not only memorable for you … but which you might want to tell us about at our Chanukah event on 21 December.  Or perhaps it’s a song! Or someone else’s memory of Jewish soul food? All contributions will be thrown into the tsimmes (or the kolboynik!)  by our team to create what we hope will be an entertaining evening.
