  • I celebrate without the religious background. It is a time for family and friends to gather to celebration one another and the lives we live.

  • We are Jewish, so no we don't celebrate Christmas in any way. Just another day for us.

    We are moderately observant, so we celebrate the holidays that everyone has heard of - Rosh HaShannah, Yom Kippur, Hanukah, and Passover. We also celebrate Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Tu b'Shevat, Shevuot, Yom Hatzmaut and Tisha b'Av.

    We do our best to educate our kids about why we do what we do and how we celebrate. Their school fills in the gaps. We also teach them as much as we can about other religions. If they ask a question and we don't know, google is our friend.
