Is Thanksgiving the most Jewish - and Israeli - holiday?
Back home, Thanksgiving was an American holiday with an Israeli immigrant twist. Being away from it makes me feel like the Pilgrims in Plymouth.
The table is set and everyone is anxious to carve The Bird. Families are gathered together –grown up children, grandkids, friends of friends, and eager parents - all excited to be reunited. It’s a bit chilly outside, and the windows are dotted with bright yellow and orange leaves. The table is lined with cranberry sauce, cornbread, sweet potatoes, and… hummus.
