When I was growing up I always learned that Hanukkah was a holiday about defending the Jewish people against assimilation; now that I’m an adult and in an interfaith family, that feels like an awkward thing to teach my kids. How do I teach the story in a way that doesn’t feel like it’s critiquing our own family’s existence?
Wondering what Mayor Thomas Menino thinks about Thanksgivukkah and its impact on the city of Boston? We asked him all about this holiday phenomenon and what it would take to declare Thanksgivukkah an official holiday in Boston.
For the record, Canadian Thanksgiving falls on the second weekend in October and has absolutely nothing to do with Native Americans.
Not your average kugel, but perfect for the double holiday.
Dish Nation is celebrating Thanksgivukkah with this fun holiday tune. (Adam Sandler would be proud!)
My husband comes from a Christian family, but we’ve decided to raise our family Jewish. With Hanukkah coming up, we were wondering about putting Hanukkah lights up on our house, like my husband used to do. What are the customs around that?
It’s customary (although certainly not required) to exchange presents on Hanukkah, which means that this Nov. 28, American Jewish families will have until nightfall to turn their tryptophan-induced exhaustion into gift-induced excitement.
