YAD (Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation) represents all that is happening in the Jewish young adult community. YAD’s annual party is the pinnacle of Chanukah celebrations for Santa Barbara and the Central Coast. YAD is going all out this year with a professional DJ, photographer, chef, entertainment, event planners and a hip venue by the beach, in the “funk zone.” This year’s theme is fire and oil, which will include fire entertainment (poi) as well as fire pits, in the outdoor patio area, and an olive oil tasting bar, and more!

Vodka Latke is an outreach event for any young adult who wants to experience a fun Chanukah party and join a thriving group of local Jewish young adults, as well as a meaningful benefit to the federation’s mission, which supports and provides social service programs, including senior services, counseling, volunteer programs, community education, rescue and relief, and of course, builds community and encourages leadership among young adults. No matter one’s age, ethnicity, religion or gender, the federation’s programs are open to all.

Sponsors will include Belvedere & Smirnoff Vodka, DJ Frito, Felici Events, Kelsey Crews Photo, Sababa Catering, Mitra Cline Graphic Design, The Tent Merchant and the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara-Young Adult Division.

— Nancy Friedland is the communications coordinator for the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
