Tuesday 3/22: Latke-Hamentaschen Debate

UPDATE: Results of Voting

In a spirited debate attended by over 100 students and faculty, side Hamentaschen reigned supreme! Each side presented lively defenses of their chosen Jewish food, and attendees enjoyed the delicious latke and hamentaschen the CJL generously provided. A recap of the debate is at the Daily Princetonian and the video of the full debate is available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

It’s back and better than ever.  Join Whig-Clio and the Center for Jewish Life as some of the world’s most brilliant minds convene for the annual tradition of debating a question of upmost importance. Which is the superior Jewish food: the Latke, the potato-based, fried pancake or the Hamentaschen, the tricornered cookie with a preserve-filled center? Join us to decide and kick off the second half of the semester on a fun and tasty note!

Whig-Clio and the CJL are proud to host the Annual Latke Hamentaschen Debate on Tuesday, March 22nd at 4:30 PM in the Whig Hall Senate Chamber.  VP for Campus Life Rochelle Calhoun will moderate the debate, and Whig-Clio President Allison Berger ’18 and CJL Student Board President Josh Roberts ’17 will both give introductory remarks.

Afterwards, we invite you to judge for yourself by eating FREE FOOD, including latkes and hamentaschen! https://www.facebook.com/events/1115493958461876/
