My son is dating a lovely young woman who is Jewish. We are Catholics. (If he has any sense he’ll ask her to marry him!) We will be having them over for Christmas dinner but I want her to feel her religion is honored. Even though Hanukkah ends on December 16th this year, I called her and asked if she might be willing to bring something with her that represents her faith. She seemed surprisingly touched. I also asked her if she’d be comfortable giving all of us a little lesson on Hanukkah during dinner and sharing some of her experiences with Hanukkah while she was growing up. It was such a positive exchange and so in the spirit of this time of year.
