It’s that time of year again, when many of our compatriots are nestled under a fireplace with stockings and a big pine tree. But how can a Jew in DC spend Christmas? By eating Chinese food? (Actually, you can! Plus these other options listed below.)

Thursday, December 24

Christmas Eve Dinner
7 p.m., Young Professionals Kesher
Join friends for a laid back “Jewish Christmas” dinner in Chinatown. RSVP by Wednesday to social@jewishfriends.org.

The Gefilte Fish Charity Fundraiser
8 p.m., Jewish Socials
Held in two locations—K Street Lounge and Union Jacks! Over 1,000 people expected to attend for a fun night of schmoozing. Donations encouraged—some of the profits will be donated to various charities.

Matzoball 2009
9 p.m., Jewish Professionals Network
Taking place at the Ultrabar, Matzoball promises to be one of the biggest parties of the season! Featuring three different dance rooms, drinks and socializing.

Friday, December 25

D25 Day of Service
All day event, DCJCC
Take the opportunity with this day off school/work to give back to the community. The J offers a variety of projects, including card making, party throwing or just visiting those in need. RSVP now as spots are disappearing fast!

Happy Challah-Day
12 p.m., Sixth & I
Better than a ham dinner, enjoy lunch with challah at the historic synagogue! A family event featuring games and crafts, yoga, science, and a special performance by Jewish rocker Sheldon Low.

Christmas Day Chinese Fest and Movie
5 p.m., Jewish Professionals Network
After sleeping off the Matzoball, relax with a little nosh and a viewing of “Sherlock Holmes”! Dinner at Cheng’s Mongolian Restaurant. Optional drinking night to follow.
