Challah/Hamantaschen Baking

The Latke-Hamantaschen Debate
  • A fun, relaxing way to cook (and eat!) some delicious food

The Great Latke-Hamentaschen Debate:

  • To coincide with Purim, we host a debate between four faculty over which is better: the latke or the hamentaschen.

Hanukkah Book Drive:

  • WCJA donated and wrapped books for elementary school students at Brayton Elementary. When donating books, WCJA members also taught Brayton students about the holiday of Hanukkah.
