As a Christian, I have great respect for Jewish customs and beliefs

I have been a Christian Sunday School teacher for 35 years. I have also taught Christian School and Youth Groups. I have made an intentional effort throughout my life to combat antisemitisn in particular and hatred in general. Being raised in Miami, my exposure to Jews, including a strict, but caring elementary teacher, was a very positive experience (It was the mid-60's and she introduced us to Jewish music and dance). I have made it a point to educate myself and others about the horrors of the Holocaust and the beauty of Jewish holidays.The bottom line of all discussion is to respect and protect. This website has been a great help to me in understanding the issues you face as a people and to educate my students to those facts. Perhaps we can not educate the world, but we can educate "our" world.

I do not feel left out at all - as a matter of fact I'm relieved to not be required to participate. Its not my holiday and am very proud of our own beatiful traditions and many holidays that we observe throughout the year.
Hanukkah happens to be one of the minor ones.
Our kids also do not feel left out - because they also understand that its not our holiday. Just like Christians do not observe our High Holidays, Sukkot, Passover, Shavuot, Purim, TBeshevat etc.... too many to name.
