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. Join us in Mandel Hall for yet another attempt to resolve this question once and for all. Attendance typically soars above 600 so come early for good seats!  ​

Please register to buy a ticket and let us know that you will be attending.
