On March 8th, dozens of students and community members packed themselves into Hillel’s multipurpose room to hear four of Washington and Lee’s esteemed faculty debate the merits of the Latke and the Hamantash in a very academic yet humorous battle of wits. The debate was moderated by First-Year Ben Brams and Senior and Hillel Co-President Josh Posner, who both gave a lively introduction of the debate’s prestigious history both nationally and at W&L.
This year students chose the Latke as the winner, although in the end the votes were very close. Students, community members, and alumni concluded W&L’s 5th Annual Latke Hamantash Debate with some home made latkes and hamantash.
