Hebrew Union Temple to honor history at Hanukkah celebration

By CATHERINE KIRK CKIRK@DDTONLINE.COM,

The Mississippi Delta’s Jewish population may be small, but the heart of their annual Hanukkah celebration is not.

“It’s a festive luncheon,” said Rabbi Debra Kassoff of the Hebrew Union Temple in Greenville. Hanukkah this year starts at sunset Dec. 22 and ends at nightfall Dec. 30. 





The best, worst Christmas

Most people have a particular Christmas story they enjoy revisiting every year. My favorite story, however, isn’t about Santa Claus, a magical snowman or flying reindeer. Mine is a World War II story of a Canadian soldier who was captured Christmas Day 1941 while stationed in China and wound up a Japanese Prisoner-of-War for four years.
