Dreidels & Doughnuts Drive-Thru Chanukah Celebration

Join the New Orleans JCC and the Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana on Sunday, December 13 for Dreidels & Doughnuts Drive-Thru Chanukah Celebration. Anyone is welcome to the drive-thru pop-up Chanukah experience featuring festive decorations, live music by Panorama Jazz Band, a dozen doughnuts for each car, and a Chanukah goodie bag to continue celebrations at home. 

Dreidels & Doughnuts will allow the community to safely celebrate the Chanukah season, which is typically kicked off with a large celebration at the JCC. Participants must remain inside their vehicles and are encouraged to mask up when receiving Chanukah treats from JCC team members. 

The New Orleans JCC encourages families to maximize holiday cheer by wearing festive attire and including their entire household in the experience. While waiting in line, lower your windows to enjoy live music and wave to JCC staff — even a human dreidel! Vehicles will be greeted with festive decor, a bubble machine, and the JCC’s giant inflatable Chanukah bear, an annual favorite of New Orleans JCC Nursery School children.

Please register for Dreidels & Doughnuts Drive-Thru Chanukah Celebration by Friday, December 11 at 12:00 PM to reserve a complimentary box of doughnuts and Chanukah treats for your vehicle.

What's Changing at the JCC in Phase 3?

Following the city’s transition to a modified Phase 3, the New Orleans JCC will ease restrictions for fitness center users. We see this forward movement as a small step in getting back to normal; however, it is still our top priority to remain safe.
