About the Book

The Elephant in the Room

a holiday tradition for interfaith families

The December Dilemma looms large for interfaith families. This book strives to honor family and fun. It provides a way for parents and children to embrace their own holiday and have a deep appreciation for the other holidays celebrated by their extended and blended family.

- Rabbi Michael Shields, Davidson, North Carolina

The God of Christmas and the God of Chanukkah are the same. God reveals Himself to many groups of people and each seeks a fitting way to respond to Him. We are all created in God’s image and give honor and Glory to Him by loving and respecting each other.

- Fr. Dan Nolan, CSV, Catholic Chaplain, Chicago, Illinois
