I’m a guest blogger at www.tcjewfolk.com today, arguing, among other things, that there is no comparison on the importance of Christmas for Christians and Hanukkah for us. So why do we feel the need for the malls, banks, etc, to affirm our Judaism with enormous dreidels?! We can stand to show a little respect and understanding for Christmas the way we expect non-Jews to respect our High Holidays and even our minor holidays (like Hanukkah).
You can agree or disagree with me HERE at www.tcjewfolk.com (the “tc” stands for Twin Cities). Thanks for checking it out!
My post also incited the bloggers at Jewish Woman’s Archive to disagree with me in their own post.
