The Latke-Hamantash Debate has been a University of Chicago Hillel tradition since 1946. UChicago faculty members apply the knowledge and tools of their disciplines to resolve this age-old question in an evening of fun and frivolity!

Past participants have included Nobel Prize winners and University presidents.

This year, join us over Zoom for yet another attempt to resolve this question once and for all.  ​
