    Chan Lowe: Happy Thanksgivukkah!
    They say there won’t be another collision of these holidays for thousands of years, so who am I not to take note, I ask you?   My paper’s website is running a recipe for something called “turbrisket,” which I couldn’t...

    The four questions of Thanksgivukkah [Commentary]
    Jewish events and holidays are often fraught with the angst of 5774 years of collective peoplehood. The cycle begins with the bris (ouch!), proceeds through Bar or Bat Mitzvah panic on the pulpit, and climaxes during the union of two Jews under the...
  • Hanukkah, the Torah and 'Unscrolled'

    I love Hanukkah. Along with Passover, it’s my favorite holiday -- because it comes steeped in narrative and because it is, essentially, do-it-yourself. Tonight at my house, we will have latkes; we will light the menorah and sing. No intercession...
  • Despite its pagan past, Halloween is about fun!

    NOTE FROM MG I have received many questions lately from religious parents of all faiths who are not completely comfortable with allowing their children to celebrate Halloween. The holiday's pagan past disturbs them and they feel somehow that a victory...
