12th Annual Latke-Hamantasch Debate

December 15, 2019, 10:00 am
Congregation Beth El
8215 Old Georgetown Rd
Bethesda, MD

Beth El’s Latke-Hamantasch Debate has regaled packed houses for the last 11 years, with debaters on both sides offering original and clever defenses for their delicacy, and the audience screaming for more! This year’s esteemed debaters are Rachel Fersh and Danny Fersh, our first sister-brother team, which will defend the latke, and Jeremy Bash and Melissa Hausfeld will defend the hamantasch. Rabbi Emeritus Bill Rudolph is again coming out of retirement to emcee and lead the opening procession. Appropriate refreshments follow; don’t miss this entertaining, somewhat educational, and very fun morning.
