Sean Altman is bringing his “Jewmongous” concert/comedy show hybrid to the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue December 4 at 9. Ages 18 and over only. It’s followed by an after-party with dancing, music, and a cash bar. Tickets ($15 through November 24, $20 after) are available here.
If you’re hosting a Hanukkah party or dinner, especially one with children, kick off your meal with one of the stories in Isaac Bashevis Singer’s short-story collection The Power of Light. We can’t all meet a matchmaking parrot or escape the Warsaw Ghetto, but Singer’s stories are a reminder that Hanukkah is more than an alternative to Christmas.
8. Matzo Ball
It’s not precisely a Hanukkah event, but this is a good week to remember to get your Matzo Ball tickets for December 24. This year’s Washington party is happening at Eden and Cafe Asia. Tickets ($30) are available here.
