And presenting a special ecumenical challenge
“Chrismukkah”—the combination in interfaith families of the generally coinciding holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah—has entered the broader consciousness, through, among other avenues, that episode of The O.C.. Never before, however, had I heard of “Eastover,” which is, well, you take a guess. A press release alerted us to Challah Connection’s Eastover gift basket, which includes a Seder plate, matzah, and Kedem grape juice as well as pink-and-white cookies (presumably not pesadik), jelly beans, and chocolate bunnies.
Meanwhile, the best thing about Easter, for people of all faiths, is the Washington Post’s annual Peeps diorama contest. So here’s a challenge: If anyone wants to make a Jewish-themed Peeps diorama and send it to me, it will find its way onto The Scroll. Best one gets a free Nextbook Press book of your choice.
