Master Debater

Back by popular demand, we are doing another Master Debater for Infinite Light! We will again be pitting some of L.A.’s most interesting minds against each other to argue, except this time we've added a new twist: modeled after the NPR show “Wait Wait…Don’t tell Me,” our panelists will compete in a series of games related to the central themes of Hanukkah and current news stories. Held at a popular theater in Silver Lake, home to many of the east side’s cutting-edge art and music events, we’ll have latkes and fresh jelly donuts, and a cash bar will be available.

One Community, Many Voices

One Community, Many Voices

The Hanukkah story speaks of both triumph and strife, illustrating how a group of people can overcome oppression despite internal challenges and disagreements. This narrative asks us to look at how we can exist as one community even with differences in practice, belief, and identification. Take part in an interactive experience in which our own stories of belonging and identity will become the basis for a one-night-only performance.

A facilitator will lead you through a 30-minute writing workshop to create personal essays and short stories based on real moments. After a break for refreshments, professional actors will read and perform a selection of these stories accompanied by live music.

for questions about this experience, contact juval@bcc-la.org.
