    7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20

    Mandel Hall, 5706 S. University Ave. 752-1127.

    The age-old feud between proponents of latkes (potato pancakes) and proponents of hamentashen (triangular pastries) continues with the 55th annual Latke-Hamentash Symposium, as panelists will draw upon their various academic disciplines to extol the virtues of latkes or hamentashen. This year’s panelists will be Ted O’Neill, Dean of College Admissions; George Glauberman, Professor in Math and the College; and Moshe David Herr, professor in history at Hebrew University and Visiting Professor in the Divinity School. Ted Cohen, Professor in Philosophy, will moderate the debate. A reception will be held following the symposium.
