Visitors can eat the deli (3636 Shelbourne St.) or do take out. The restaurant is open 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., from Tuesday to Friday every week. Latkes can be pre-ordered by calling 250-477-7185. Parties of five or greater are also recommended to call ahead.

The JCCV also encourages the public to stop into the gift store for some Chanukah shopping for traditional candles, dreidels, cards, kids games, books and more.
