Nate Hershkowitz speaks enthusiastically as he describes his typical day at The Evil Genius Group, a marketing company for small businesses and high-profile individuals in New York. “It’s always flying here,” he says. “Everyone has so much to do. But at the same time, it’s really chilled.” He gestures around the office, a WeWork space housed in the Upper East Side: In the “living room area,” as he describes it, one employee sits comfortably on a yellow couch, his laptop on his knees, while another sits on one of the barstools in the “kitchen.” The interior décor is modern chic: a collage of cool, colorful furniture, geometric wallpaper, and contrasting, bright textures. One room’s walls are covered entirely in whiteboards. Another hallway is covered in pastel-colored drawings and motivational quotes.

The guys observed a Thanksgivukah Extravaganza to celebrate the one-time cultural phenomenon in the form of a feast celebrating both festive occasions. Representatives of four countries—the U.S., Israel, Canada and Belarus—enjoyed heaping portions of turkey, stuffing, roast beef and of course latkas. For some reason vegetables were served, too. After going around the table so everyone could say what they were thankful for, they lit candles and sang Chanukah songs. They would have sung Thanksgiving songs, too, if only anyone knew any. Miraculously, the leftovers lasted eight days (hat tip: Tzvi Norowitz!).

Tzvi Norowitz lead the davening, but everyone else joined in. Kabbalas Shabbos was one to be remembered and the songs that filled the room led to dancing and more singing. The memory of that “lecha dodi” will stay with us for a long time to come.

All that transplantation to different territories, particularly as an Orthodox Jew, was “an interesting experience,” Appleson concedes.
