Nice Jewish Boys Light It Up At Hebro’s Christmas Eve Jewbilee

It's a lot more fun than Chinese food and a movie—trust us!

Every year, while Christian kiddies were nestled all snug in their beds waiting for Santa, hundreds of Jewish gay boys and their Gentile friends make merry at Jewbilee, Hebro’s annual Christmas Eve celebration.

This year is the event’s tenth anniversary—and December 24 is actually the first night of Hanukkah—so it’s a double mitzvah to go!

Join DJ Xavier, dreidel-spinning drag queen Lady SinAGaga and Hebro’s main mensch, Jayson Littman for music, mazel and more at Stage 48 in New York.

Need more convincing to go? Below, check out pictures from past Jewbilees.
