This year, Hanukka celebrations in many American Jewish homes will be different.
The reason? The holiday of Thanksgiving falls on Hanukka, an occurrence so rare
that some say it has never happened before.When I was a small child, I
asked my mother why we were eating turkey on Thanksgiving instead of the usual
roast chicken. She replied as if she were explaining a rule from the Torah: “On
Thanksgiving, you’re supposed to eat turkey.”
