    Celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah at the same time.

    Although Hanukkah may be over, it doesn’t mean the party must end there. Enjoy a “Very Jewish Christmas” on Wednesday, Dec. 22 at Zahav in Old City.

    Filled with Israeli-inspired Chinese food and two 80s flicks on the big screen, Chef Michael Solomonov reminisces on his childhood through this festive night.

    “Growing up Jewish, it’s hard not to feel left out at Christmas time, so my family and I observed the tradition of many Jewish families: enjoying Chinese take-out and watching a favorite movie instead, ” said Solomonov.

    The $50 meal and movie night includes wonton soup, lamb egg rolls, salt and pepper squid, cold sesame noodles, Persian fried rice, cashew chicken, mushroom and tofu hot pot and a “pg-rated” happy ending dessert. Plus, if you miss the first movie screening at 6 p.m., check out the 8:30 show.
