It's all Greek at the New Year party

Hundreds of Jewish students from across Europe are expected to travel to Athens to celebrate a Chanucah and New Year's Eve party with a difference.

The European Centre for Jewish Students will mark the Maccabees' victory over the Greek emperor, Antiochus, with a range of festivities.

Students and young professionals aged between 18 and 35 will stay in a five-star hotel in the centre of the capital from December 30 to January 2. Activities will include tours of the city, Shabbat meals, seminars and educational sessions.
