Ignite Chanukah 2015 is less than 2 months away!

Ignite Chanukah is our biggest event of the year, and it’s less than 2 months away! What does that mean? First, mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 8th at Rembrant Yard to not miss out on the party of the year!

What is Ignite Chanukah you ask? It’s a Chanukah party where 10+ of your peers get up to give 5 minute talks about something they are passionate about with 20 powerpoint slides on 15 second auto-turn. It’s fact-paced, fun-filled, and a great community event. Before we get the talks started, we have a OPEN BAR with latkes, falafel, and other treats to enjoy. Check out a talk from a previous year to get a taste for what it’s all about HERE.

Tickets will be available soon. If you are interested in speaking or helping to coordinate IgniteChanukah this year, please reach out to Michael Rosenzweig at:  michael@Boulderjcc.org.

Now We Need to Hear From YOU.

Submissions are submitted, and we’re ready to hear from YOU about what your favourite topics are! This year’s Ignite Chanukah is being community sourced – which means that you submitted the topics, and you’ll pick your favourites to hear speak. So if you plan on attending this year’s most fantabulous young adult Chanukah party, speak up! We have submissions about everything from circumcision to yoga, jews in roller derby to kosher chicken slaughter. Vote for your favourites and hear them all this December 14!

Submissions Now Open!

Submissions are now open for Ignite Chanukah 2011! If you’ve got the chutzpah to talk about something Jewish (or even something Jew-ish) at this year’s best Chanukah shindig, now’s the time to let us know!

Not sure if speaking at Ignite Chanukah is right for you? It is, we promise! Sparks are 5 minute long presentations about anything you darn well please, accompanied by 20 powerpoint slides that will automatically advance one at a time, every 15 seconds during your speech. Can you keep up? Can the audience?? Finding out is half the fun! (The other half is learning cool new things from cool new people.)

Sound like a thing you can do? Of course it does! Submit your idea here, and tell Ignite Chanukah about your passion!
