Between the High Holy Days and the Festival of Lights falls the completely American holiday of Thanksgiving. The latkes come later; Thanksgiving is all about turkey and stuffing and cranberries. And it's about taking time to be thankful for the blessings in our lives—family and friends, work and play. It's wonderful to be Jewish. And it's great to be American. Happy Thanksgiving.
