Hanukkah Latke & Doughnut Potluck

When: Monday, December 2, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00pm
Where: Rebecca Sach’s house (email jgap@princeton.edu for address)


Get excited! JGAP’s annual Hanukkah party is this upcoming Monday night! We’ll be eating latkes, lighting the menorah, and comparing Thanksgivukkah stories from 7:00-9:00pm. The party will be at Rebecca’s apartment near Nassau Street in Princeton. JGAP will be providing latkes, sufganiyot (doughnuts!), and the fixings. It’s going to be delicious. We would really appreciate if you could bring along an appetizer, salad, side, or drinks so that we don’t run out of food! As always, feel free to bring family, friends and colleagues.

PLEASE RSVP to jgap@princeton.edu if you can make it! We need to know how many latkes to make, and what you’ll be able to contribute, if anything. See you soon!

Matzah Pizza Party (PASSED)


When: PASSED (Wednesday, March 27 from 8:00 – 11:00pm)
Where: Aaron Attermann’s house (email jgap@princeton.edu for address)

Our kosher for Passover matzah pizza party was a huge success, with 16 JGAPers in attendance, and lots of new faces! We certainly ate like we just escaped slavery! 🙂 A huge thanks to Aaron Attermann and Sloane Frost for their incredible pizza- and brei-making skills, and thanks to Aaron A. for hosting this event at his apartment. Thanks to everyone who made it out tonight!

We had matzah brei with maple syrup, margarine, and mango and strawberry jams. We also had delicious matzah pizzas with toppings varying from green peppers, onions and mushrooms to sun-dried tomatoes and even pineapple! Who knew matzah could taste this good?? Our attendees brought more wine than we could consume, salad, chocolate, and a number of other desserts. Thanks Jean for the incredibly delicious homemade kosher for Passover cake!

Stay tuned for more upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you all again, soon, and seeing more new faces in the future! As always, email jgap@princeton.edu if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for future events. Chag sameach, and enjoy the rest of the holiday.

sederplate1Chag sameach! We hope everyone enjoyed their Passover Seders, whether they spent them with family and friends or at the Princeton CJL. We had tons of people at the Princeton CJL seders, and there were lots of different fun themes. The chocolate seder on Tuesday night was particularly delicious.

To keep in mind for next year, seders are free for graduate students (with a Princeton ID), and $18 for young professionals, which is very reasonable for the amount of food you’ll be eating. As with all other JGAP and CJL events, you are welcome to bring family and friends, but you must remember to register everyone.

When: PASSED (Thursday, December 13, 2012 from 8:00 – 11:30pm)

We had an awesome time at our first ever Hanukkah Board Game Night. There were about 15 attendees throughout the night. Thanks to Abby Cohen for hosting and making latkes, cinnamon twists and cookies! Everything was delicious, and we had lots of fun meeting so many new people, eating, playing games, and lighting candles. Thanks to everyone else who came and brought games and snacks. We played Apples to Apples (Jewish Edition), and are looking forward to our next game night once the new semester starts. Stay tuned for more upcoming events, and as always, email jgap@princeton.edu if you’re willing to host an event, or have an idea for a future event.
