What are you up to Christmas Eve??
It's not a question usually asked by two rabbis, but we figured: it's the 5th night of Hanukkah, the dead of winter, and there's very little open, so:
Let's light up the night with a dance party. Lights-off, shoes-off, go nuts. Big 'ole warehouse on the North side. 60s music, world beat, 80 glam-rock, 90s rap, with a few pearls of Hanukkah wisdom thrown in there, Havdallah and Hanukkah candle lighting (BYO menorah).
Vegan Thai food is on the menu, vegetarian pot-luck welcome. Please bring something to donate to the Night Ministry, too, to help make the winter just a little warmer and easier for their homeless clients: socks, scarves, travel-sized toiletries.
6:30 pm, 4150 N. Western (a few blocks North of Irving Park)
