During Hollywood’s Golden Age, the studios, through newspapers, fan magazines, and trade publications, published photos of their stars celebrating Christmas. In this way, Hollywood—though founded by poor immigrant Jews—assured its vast audience that the motion picture industry was in harmony with Christian America.
My wife and I are Orthodox Jews. We observe the Sabbath and eat only kosher food. Our lives and values are built around the Torah, written and oral. But we enjoy this season, and honor Christmas. We shudder at the relentless postmodern assault on this most Christian of holidays. We want America to remain a steadfastly Judeo-Christian country. Without God individual liberty vanishes, replaced, inevitably, by a powerful centralized state, the cult of personality, and various forms of paganism, currently exemplified by climate change (AKA weather) fanatics.
We urge everyone to pray for the Christians who are being murdered, tortured and oppressed by genocidal Islamists all across the Middle East and Africa.
Here’s a sample of Hollywood and Christmas as it used to be.
Karen and I wish all our Christian friends a Merry Christmas.
I would be remiss if I did not link to a splendid Jewish Christmas gift. You have my personal guarantee that this item is awesome, and you can get it in time for Christmas or Chanukah.
