An Asian fusion twist on a traditional Chanukah party, Sushi-Sake-Latke was the Young Adult Division of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s biggest event of the year. Held on Saturday, Dec. 1 in the Cardo on the Sandler Family Campus, more than 180 people attended.

Specialty latkes, sushi and plenty of sake were served in a totally transformed Cardo. Guests enjoyed a photo booth with props, danced to the beats of DJ Silver, and ate fresh doughnuts for dessert.

Event co-chairs, Beth Gerstein and Steve Zuckerman were thrilled that so many people experienced the event after many weeks of ticket sales and planning.

“Sushi-Sake-Latke was truly an amazing night of great friends, drinks, food and fun. This event was planned to bring the Jewish young professional community together for a social event, and it was nice to see the entire community represented and enjoying the evening!” says Gerstein.

Lesley Siegel donated her time, talents and props to decorate the Cardo and transform the community space for one unforgettable evening.

Sushi-Sake-Latke is part of a renewed outreach effort by YAD, and could not have been possible without the support of the Baer Family Foundation and UJFT.
