Latkes and Silver Bells: Interfaith Stories of Survival and Beauty
Put on your ugliest Hanukkah or Christmas sweater and come out for an evening that'll make you glad you haven't sworn off all the traditions yet. With food by Carbon Arc (like, GOOD latkes), cocktails, mocktails, and some of Chicago's best storytellers, this isn't your bubbe's queer, interfaith, holiday, story-telling event. Brought to you by Gilead Chicago and Mishkan Chicago, partners in interfaith crime since 2014.
We'll light Advent and Havdallah candles, marking the end of Sabbath. We'll sing Hanukkah songs, and that Christian holiday favorite "We Belong to the Light." (Who were we kidding with all that "we sing carols" stuff.)
