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 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!
