Fifty young professionals and six Holocaust survivors came together Dec. 18 at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust for “L’Dough V’Dough: Light and Miracles,” a challah-baking event.

“This [was a] special program that celebrated intergenerational conversation, Jewish traditions and the miracle of Chanukah,” said the museum’s Director of Education Jordanna Gessler.

The program was part of the Infinite Light series of Chanukah-themed events organized by the NuRoots group that brings together people in their 20s and 30s for events across the city.

During the event, the young professionals shared life stories with the survivors, baked Chanukah cookies and crafted chanukiyot that were then donated to the Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles’ Israel Levin Senior Center.

Attendees included Galit Prince, a representative of 3G@LAMOTH, a community for grandchildren of survivors committed to Holocaust remembrance.
