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 TAS starting at 4:30 PM to discuss what we saw and have a “pre-neg” sponsored by Sisterhood. At 5:30 PM we will have early Shabbat services. At 6:30 PM will will go down as a group to Golden Hunan (10334 Reseda, 91326) for a fixed menu dinner.

The cost for the dinner is $22 per person (adult or child); $24.50 with soft drink (see menu below). Reservations must be made by Monday, December 21; 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 Golden Hunan 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 call (641) 715-3900 extension 403235#. 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 before the service using Square. All payments must be received before Shabbat starts on Friday, December 25, 2015.

Note: If you only want to participate in the movie coordination, you may use the phone number above, or email your desired movies to president@tasnorthridge-motas.org.
