MoTAS Jewish Christmas

jewish-xmasFor many Jews, if you ask what they are doing on Christmas day, the answer is the same: They will be seeing a movie, and having Chinese food. Who knows where this tradition got started? Perhaps it is in the Talmud. But who is MoTAS to argue with tradition?

MoTAS is facilitating a TAS Jewish Christmas. MoTAS will be providing a list of recommended afternoon movie showtimes for members to pick their favorite movies and meet other TAS folk (see “Movie Coordination” below). You’ll buy your own tickets and pick the movie, and hopefully meet TAS friends. We will reconvene at Mandarin King restaurant (17092 Devonshire Blvd.; Northridge, CA 91324 — on Devonshire just W of Balboa) at 6pm for a fixed menu dinner.

The cost for the dinner is $23 per person (adult or child); soft drinks are extra. Reservations must be made by Friday, December 22; there are no exceptions and no walk-ups. December 25 is an extremely busy night at the restaurant, and we must pre-reserve our space to avoid the wait. The price is based on the Mandrin King charge plus tax, gratuity, and online processing fees; this is not a fund-raising event.

Register OnlineTo register for event, click here or on the image to the right, or send email to faigin@cahighways.org. Please provide the names of the movies of interest. If you are not paying on-line, your check must be received by the day of event; we will also be able to take “day-of” payments by credit card. All payments must be received by the time we sit down to dinner on Monday, December 25, 2017.

Note: If you only want to participate in the movie coordination, email your desired movies to faigin@cahighways.org.
