I got a cute e-mail the other day, with a photo of a hand-lettered sign: “The Chinese Rest. Assoc. of the United States would like to extend our thanks to The Jewish People/ we do not completely understand your dietary customs . . ./ But we are proud and grateful that your GOD insist you eat our food on Christmas.” Followed on the bottom, left to right, by a yin/yang symbol, the words Happy Holidays!, and a Star of David.
Parties and celebrations during the holiday week.
A sad tale of a lonely Jewish boy on Christmas
Christmas Day found some Southern California Jews volunteering at social service agencies, some working and still others marking the holiday with a Jewish tradition -- eating Chinese food and going to movies.
