The Federation’s “often imitated, but never duplicated” Latke Ball is Back

The premier Jewish Christmas party for young adults in the Bay Area

San Francisco, CA – On Christmas Eve, December 24, 2014, the Young Adult Division of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties will host the Latke Ball – the Bay Area’s annual Christmas eve dance party. The event is turning 18 this year – its “Chai” birthday – so it will be a no holds barred bash at Ruby Skye in San Francisco. Partying for a good cause, we’re celebrating with 2 DJs, 2 dance floors and more than 800 people. Whether your are a Jew or gentile, this party will not disappoint. Leave your Netflix at home and bring your crew to Ruby Skye on December 24. All proceeds will be reinvested in our local and global Jewish community. Some info about Latke Ball:

  • Latke Ball is the largest and oldest Jewish event of its kind in the Bay Area.
  • The party will feature two dance floors and two DJs: DJ Miles (top 40, old school hip hop) and, for the Russian Room, DJ Shmumer (melodic techno, EDM).
  • Uber is offering 10% off all Uber pool rides to/from Latke Ball that night.
