Master Debater

Master Debater: Winner Takes Nun

A rabbi, a comedian, a writer, a boxer and a historian walk into a debate....

On the third night of Hanukkah, East Side Jews is pitting teams of some of LA’s most interesting minds against each other to argue, high-school-debate-style, the crucial issues of our times. The night’s topics will range from jelly doughnuts vs. latkes to miracles vs. free will.

This master debate is moderated by comedian Fielding Edlow and features historian Dr. Max D. Baumgarten, Rabbi Gabriel Botnick, comedian Jessie Kahnweiler, actor Matt Oberg, writer Zan Romanoff, and boxer Zachary “Kid Yamaka” Wohlman.

Latkes will be provided from Langer’s and Wexler’s (yet another throwdown), and we’ll have jelly doughnuts for dessert.

Thursday, December 14th
6:30pm Doors & 7:00pm Debate
Lyric Hyperion | 2106 Hyperion Avenue, LA 90027
$15 per person or two for $25
