Brooklyn Brandeis Society celebrates Hanukkah during annual party
The Brooklyn Brandeis Society hosted its annual Hanukkah party on Tuesday in Brooklyn Heights, where members met at the Brooklyn Bar Association building for lunch and a bit of a history lesson on the holiday.
“It was a great turnout for our annual Brandeis/Hanukkah event,” said Brandeis Society President Andrew Fallek. “It brings me great pleasure to see members and non-members as well. It makes me happy that we are able to cross cultural and religious lines.”
The Brandeis Society was officially formed in November 2014, which makes the group just a little over 3 years old. It’s still one of the smaller bar associations in the borough, which boasts bar associations that are more than 100 years old, but it is constantly growing. Tuesday’s luncheon was one of the biggest events in its history with more than 60 people in attendance.
Stil, Fallek would like to see a stronger turnout at events.
