All Christians remember, our Lord is a Jew
For all my elder sisters and brothers in the faith, to whom I am related by adoption through Christ Jesus, I offer Jill Sobule's Hanukkah classic for this last day of Hanukkah- Jesus Was A Dreidel Spinner as a belated traditio.
Along these lines, I want to agree with His Excellency, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, who in his unique and pastoral way, makes the case that Advent Must Be Preserved. Just as Archbishop Dolan, who recently became the Catholic lead for the on-going dialogue with Jews in the U.S., was invited to light the Hanukkah menorah at Temple Emanu-Elin on 11 December, the first day of this Jewish season, he has invited Rabbi David Posner, senior Rabbi of the 5th Ave Jewish congregation, to St. Patrick's Cathedral tomorrow to light the fourth candle on the Advent wreath.
