For the first time since 2019, NowGen was able to finally celebrate Hanukkah together again. Over 100 NowGen members gathered at Fat Bottom Brewing in The Nations for a night to celebrate and be festive. Julia Motis, NowGen Jewish Life Committee Chair, spearheaded the idea of making this year’s party an official ugly sweater party. In previous years, people came dressed for the season, but this year everyone came out in their ugliest of ugly holiday sweaters. This was the largest attended NowGen event since the pandemic and we're hoping to only go up from here.
