Eating Jewish: Chinese Food and Christmas

A quick read through the food sections of many newspapers and you’ll find a multitude of articles suggesting what to make for holiday (read, Christmas) meals. On the other hand, a read through Jewish newspapers, magazines and blogs leads one to find articles discussing the relationship between Jews and Chinese food that has long defined Christmas for many in the community.

The Jew and the Carrot have a short video about the history of this relationship, while an article in Tablet entitled “Jewish Christmas” discusses the modernization of this tradition happening at the Mile End diner in Brooklyn along with some of the history relating to it.
