Past Events

This is a partial listing of some of the events we have had in the past.

The Latke Challenge: 

Where we invite congregants to bring in their best latkes in a cut-throat competition for the tastiest morsels.  Past winners have been the Jew-maican Patties, The Starsky & Latke, Ingie’s Latkes, and Bulgarian Sweet Latkes, and many more.

The Adult Purim Party:

Every Purim party needs a Purim Schpiel, and we gottem.  Good, corny, groany, but mostly just plain funny.  Anyone with a kosher ham bone is invited to act and everyone ends up rolling on the floor for a good time.  And don’t forget the Karaoke. Eveyone loves the Karaoke. 

The Worlds Most Dangerous Driedel:

A few years ago we tired for the guiness world book of records title of worlds largest driedel.  We didn’t quite get it on a technicality, but our 32 foot, 4 inch Driedel was a smash.  Especially when it landed.  We played a game of driedel with four people spinning it.  Much fun and danger was had. (When a 32′ driedel falls, you HAVE to pay attention). Video
