In order to better serve you, the Philadelphia Jewish Voice is doing a software upgrade tonight at 3:00 am. We anticipate that the upgrade will take one or two hours and the website will not be available during that time. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please tell us if you experience any problems after that.
In the meantime, here are some highlights of our latest coverage. Consult the Philadelphia Jewish Voice Community Calendar for upcoming Hannukah celebrations and other events in our area. 
Note in particular that King Davids of Comedy will be playing in New York City on December 24 (8pm, 10pm) and 25 (8pm). The show stars Philadelphia Jewish Voice writer Steve Hofstetter. One-third of the ticket price will be donated to support the Philadelphia Jewish Voice if you use the Promo Code: PJVOICE .
