A live auction of candelabras and other treats will accompany the contest, says temple spokeswoman Elaine Lee. "Latkes tend to go fast, so if you don't get there early, they may be gone. But we'll have plenty of other food, so no one will go away hungry."
The party runs from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. when Rabbi (and latke judge) Adam Morris will begin his Chanukah service and concert; attendees are encouraged to bring their own Menorah and candles to add to the festive feel at the temple, 2600 Leyden Street. The cook-off costs $20 per family or $5 for singles; RSVP by calling 303-388-4239 or e-mailing [email protected] There is no cost for the service.
