Sixth & I and SpeakeasyDC present the fourth annual night of funny, poignant, powerful, and peculiar autobiographical stories about all things Jewish, not-so-Jewish, and wanna-be Jewish on the last night of Chanukah.

This year’s stories center on tourism in Israel, classes for interfaith couples, marrying into a Jewish family, always being mistaken for a Jew, finding your Jewish identity in an African country, following the career of the most influential Jewish American athlete of all-time, and, of course, brisket. Storytellers include:

Bonnie Benwick, Interim Food Editor of The Washington Post.

Andy Pollin, Co-host of The Sports Reporters on ESPN980.

Sara Polon, aka Soupergirl.

John Donvan, ABC News Correspondent.

Meleia Egger, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Liaison.

Eliot Stein, Managing Editor of Living Social.

Hillah Culman, raised in Germany, is a Program Manager for Pro-Active Performance.
