The annual Community Chanukah Celebration will be held at the Uptown Jewish Community Center, 5342 St. Charles Avenue, at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9.
This year’s event will feature a performance by Nefesh Mountain, the husband and wife performing artists Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff.
Described as “the place where bluegrass and old-time music meet with Jewish heritage and tradition,” Nefesh Mountain brings a spirituality to their music in both English and Hebrew.
Latkes and fried chicken from Kosher Cajun New York Delicatessen and Grocery will be available for free to the public.
The event is part of the Cathy and Morris Bart Jewish Cultural Arts Series and also receives sponsorship from the Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana and the Feil Family Foundation.
