Every year, on the fourth Thursday of November, friends and families all gather as one to celebrate Thanksgiving. We think back onto the previous year and give thanks for all the good that has happened and for the positive people in our lives. It is also a day where people go out and do good deeds for the less fortunate and open their doors to others. We also sit down and have a massive meal together. These actions and traditions of Thanksgiving strongly relate to the ideals of Judaism and what Jewish people should be doing in their daily lives.
Last week, I talked about my experience growing up as a non-Jew in a Jewish community. This week, I interviewed my fellow intern, Rachel Feins, who grew up Jewish in a non-Jewish community.
