If You Give a Jew a Latke

This year, Hanukkah starts the night before Thanksgiving.1 Why is it so early? I'm glad you have an inquisitive mind, dear goyim and girlem, since it's time for my 4th annual Jew & A! And you know what that means...

I will answer any question you have about Judaism.

It's that simple. Just post any questions you might have about Jews or Judaism in the comments section before the end of Hanukkah (sundown on 12/5), and I will answer them for you.

Perhaps you've always wondered why so many Jews' names end in "berg" or "stein." Maybe you want to know Moses' thoughts on gay marriage. Or maybe you're simply hoping to find a good local deli. Whatever your query, send it my way. Even if it's been asked before, don't let that stop you — like the Jewish calendar, the answers to such questions are in constant flux.

So, what do you want to know?

Past Jew & A's:

1 That's the American Thanksgiving. Canadians celebrated theirs last month, because they're always one step ahead of us on things like holidays and healthcare.


  1. Happy Thankukkah! I think that's what another Jewish friend called it anyway.
    Here's a question just for you - have you ever visited Israel?

  2. My fave card this year had a turkey with a Menorah as its tail and the greeting "Gobble Tov!" :-) Why is it sometimes spelled Hanukkah, sometimes Chanukah? Which one is correct?
