Thanksgivukkah Events Around the District

A candelabra cross between a menorah and a turkey, available for sale at

Thanksgivukkah, eg the cross between the American Thanksgiving and Jewish Chanukah holidays, comes once every 70,000-plus years, but 5774/2013 happens to be one of those times. Predominately celebrated at home, no doubt, with creative mashup recipes, the local community has also found ways to celebrate this double-heritage miracle publicly. Check it out!

  • This Monday, join NoVa Tribe for a Thanksgivukkah cooking class featuring potato latkes with cranberry applesauce and sour cream, pumpkin gelt trifle, and sweet potato pie sufganiyot donuts. Yum!
  • The DCJCC is hosting a contest for best Thanksgivukkah centerpiece as contributed by members of our community; check out the facebook page to vote for a People’s Choice. Winners of the contest and the people’s choice will be featured in the Washington Jewish Week and in an art exhibition at the Distrikt Bistro Café.
  • Gather The Jews published a list of top Thanksgivukkah videos. Revel in the comedy and wisdom of these two stories being brought together.

Gobble sameach! 😛
