L’Dough V’Dough: Light and Miracles is a unique and meaningful program of Los Angeles Museum of Holocaust (LAMOTH) that celebrates the Jewish traditions of Hanukkah, and connects young adults with Holocaust Survivors for intergenerational dialogue, exploration of personal narratives, and learning about Jewish life before, during, and after the Shoah.
Evoking the Hebrew phrase, “L’Dor V’Dor,” or “from generation to generation,” L’Dough V’Dough annually brings together over 1,000 students and Holocaust Survivors to braid and bake challah or cookies. While kneading the dough, students and Survivors share, remember, and bond one generation to the next in an environment conducive to asking questions and encouraging dialogue. The Light and Miracles program, scheduled for Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 11:00 am at the Museum is LAMOTH’s 2nd annual L’Dough V’Dough Hanukkah-themed program designed for young adults.
Participants will braid dough for challah and decorate Hanukkah cookies using festive Hanukkah-shapes. While the challah and cookies are baking, attendees will continue to have the opportunity to share with the Survivor Mentors while creating and adorning menorahs that will be donated to a local community center for their Hannukah celebrations. Holocaust Survivors and young professionals will have the opportunity to speak about heritage, community, and the importance of passing down traditions.
