As they often do, Hanukka and Christmas overlapped in 2003. That year, we spent December in a little Pennsylvania town where the congregants of the only synagogue in the area ranged from Orthodox to Reconstructionist.

On December 24, with America’s Christmas frenzy at its peak, the synagogue’s rabbi showed us the special glasses he was handing out to his youngest congregants. Once you put them on, all you could see in front of you were Stars of David.
