Jewish Children’s Regional Service (JCRS) will host its fifth annual community-wide Chanukah party, “Latkes with a Twist” tonight at Press Street Station, 5 Homer Plessy Way in the Faubourg Marigny opposite NOCCA.
Billed as one of the top Chanukah parties in the nation, this year’s event will feature Adam Biderman, chef and owner of The Company Burger, as the revered latke master. He will be joined by several NOCCA culinary students, whose school is located just block away.
The evening will also feature live music by the Joe Gelini Trio, an open bar featuring a Vodka Latke Punch, a Buffalo Trace Old Fashioned “Hanukkah Hi-Ball,” and wine courtesy of Sazerac Brands. Pabst will supply beer for the event.
Tickets were $30 per person in advance and are now $35 at the door.
JCRS has served vulnerable Jewish children and families providing college scholarships, grants for Jewish summer camp experiences, special needs assistance, and other vital outreach programs since 1855. Today, JCRS is as vital as ever, as JCRS will serve or fund over 1,700 Jewish children from our seven-state region, including 54% of Jewish youth, ages 17 and under, in Greater New Orleans.
