Should Jews Be Singing Christmas Songs? Our Readers Have Some Strong Opinions:

One-third of the 141 readers polled have no shame in rocking around the Christmas tree — and another 19 percent will join them if they promise there will be no mention of Jesus.

But one-third say “it’s blasphemy!” and 19 percent take a more diplomatic approach, saying, “not for me, but go for it.”

Do you have a burning Hanukkah debate you want to have our readers settle? The Great Hanukkah Debates will continue until the end of the holiday, December 20, 2017. Email us at community@forward.com and we just might feature your question.
