DAY 1272: Tonight’s Tradition

(12/24/15), Reflection on tonight's Chinese Dinner & A Movie event... Dear Hevreh, A brief search of Facebook events reveals the extent to which the custom (minhag) of Chinese Dinner and a Movie on Christmas seems as powerful as any biblical or rabbinic law (halakhah). This should not be surprising. Whether it's eating bagels and lox on weekends, placing rocks on gravestones, or arguing over the check, Jewish customs are extremely potent markers of Jewish practice and identity.
