On December 1, 2010, at 12:00 pm at the student lounge at HUC-JIR/Los Angeles, HUC-JIR students, faculty, and staff will participate in a latke eating contest. Contestants will have seven minutes to eat as many latkes as possible. This is a fundraising event, with proceeds going to the IMPJ via the Ride for Reform.
Those not wishing to compete are urged to sponsor an "athelete". The system is similar to other charity walks, runs, jogs, etc. except instead of pledging for miles covered, it's for carbohydrates ingested.
The sponsors of the winning competitor will be represented in some fashion on this year's Ride for Reform in Israel.
Everyone is welcome to join to watch the competition on December 1.
