Join Friends of Jewish Senior Housing for the first annual Latke Festival at Lions Gate on Sunday, December 17 at 12 p.m. Lions Gate is located at 1110 Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees, NJ.

Help us to celebrate Hanukkah and vote on the best latkes and creative interpretation of a potato pancake in our region. You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy these luscious pancakes fried in oil with crispy browned edges. Just come ready to eat latkes prepared by professional chefs and home cooks. Your attendance will give you the opportunity to vote for your favorite latke. Awards will be presented for the “People’s Choice” and “Best Use of the Potato.” There will be other culinary treats for tasting along with seasonal beverages.

Hanukkah music, a game truck, and other holiday games will share the stage with the latke tasting.  Proceeds will support several programs, activities and services for the healthcare residents at Lions Gate and residents of Saltzman, Dubin and Gesher Houses. 

For ​O​ur Eagles Fans​:​ TVs in the building will have the game playing.
