Religion News Service – Thanksgiving is a Jewish holiday

„Can there be any doubt, therefore, why the story of the Exodus has been so important to the way that we Americans understand ourselves?

This is how Thanksgiving became a Jewish holiday.

The settlers in Plymouth knew that they had to give thanks.

When the Pilgrims looked for a way of celebrating their freedom, and their entry into a new land – what did they do?

They took the idea of the harvest – and they took the idea of freedom – and they combined the two of them. Thanksgiving is not just Sukkot; it is actually a seder of freedom. It is the American Sukkot – and the American Pesach, combined.”
