Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) President Barry Shrage schools us on the real story of Thanksgivukkah.
Every day, Malka Benjamin wakes up and transforms herself into Mary Warren, an actual person from the 17th century.
For the first time since the 1800s, the first full day of Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving Day this year, and according to many in the Jewish community, the two holidays have much more in common than just a calendar date. They both celebrate gratitude, community, and religious tolerance.

Seeking connections and common themes between Thanksgiving and Hanukkah will enhance kids’ understanding and experience of both holidays.
Coming together in the kitchen and around the table are some of the best ways to build lasting memories, create family traditions and continue the centuries-old rituals of the Jewish people.
If you’re not planning to travel for Thanksgiving this year, consider throwing a dinner party with friends who will also be in town.
