American Jews ready for Thanksgivukkah

(Continued)

Mom of two Dana Gitell, who lives outside Boston, partnered with an artist and the Jewish gift site Moderntribe to create and sell souvenir T-shirts, cards and a poster. She sees a happy and meaningful coincidence, and 10 percent of proceeds will go to Mazon, a Jewish hunger relief organization.

“Cosmic? It’s just a day when Jews and the rest of America are celebrating on the same day,” she said. “It’s an opportunity for us to really celebrate the Jewish-American experience, and to give thanks in America for the religious freedom we enjoy here, and for making the Jewish-American experience possible.”
