This week Jerusalemites got more than just Hanukka candles and doughnuts at a Jerusalem Challenge event held at Beit Yehudit in the German Colony. The organization’s founder, Lisa Barkan, says Jerusalem Challenge aims “to turn the city into a living classroom for Jewish peoplehood, offering all kinds of Jewish experiences to enhance Jewish identity.”

Sunday’s gathering was suitably entitled Against All Odds: A Hanukka Event for Young Adults, with the speakers including tsunami survivor Michal Margolis and wheelchair-bound champion dancer and sportsman Mennie Glass.
