A Taste of the Latke Hamantash Debate
Every November at the University of Chicago, the best minds in the world consider the question that ranks with these as one of the most enduring of human history: latke or hamantash? This great latke-hamantash debate, occurring every year for the past six decades, brings Nobel laureates, university presidents, and notable scholars together to debate whether the potato pancake or the triangular Purim pastry is in fact the worthier food. This year, we bring a taste of the debate to Uncommon Core. The Debate is hosted and organized by the University of Chicago Hillel.
