1st Annual UConn Latkes vs Hamentashen Debate

Monday, March 2, 2015
7:00pm – 9:00pm

Storrs Campus
Student Union Theatre

The debate of the ages is coming to UConn! Watch professors and academics use their area of expertise to argue for the Latke or the Hamentash!

For centuries, these two Jewish foods have satisfied the masses, the Latke on Hanukkah, and the Hamentash on Purim. It's about time that someone settles once and for all which is the better food.

This March, some of the top faculty of our great university will dress up in formal academic clothing and use cold, hard facts and a lot of satire and humor to defend their side.

FEATURING for the LATKE: President Susan Herbst Professor Lewis Gordon, Africana Studies and Philosophy

FEATURING for the HAMENTASHEN: Professor Jeremy Pressman, Political Science Professor Jeffrey Shoulson, Judaic Studies

The debate will take place Monday, March 2 from 7-9pm at the Student Union Theatre. Admittance is free, RSVP here:
