A Kosher Christmas: Rabbi Joshua Plaut
Kyle, the lonely Jewish kid feels left out every year at this time in the animated world of South Park. Many Jews wonder how animated they should be during this season; their relationship with Christmas is complicated.
The lights, the presents and Santa Claus are all unavoidable. And couples in interfaith relationships have all kinds of struggles over what to tell their kids.
Joshua Plaut has examined how Jews have lived with and even embraced Christmas. He is an ordained Rabbi and his new book is called A Kosher Christmas: Tis the Season to be Jewish. And he joined us from New York City.
