    1. You’re welcome!

      Well, we don’t celebrate them as much as we’d like. One of our goals for 2016 is to learn more about the Jewish Feasts to celebrate them properly. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them. 🙂

  1. Honestly, I’m only part Jewish (my dad’s side is Jewish) and we don’t celebrate Hanukkah in the traditional way. We kind of just celebrate it like Christmas although I believe we sometimes light the Manora (not even sure how to spell it 😦 ).

        1. Basically, it began as a group of Jews who believed that Jesus was the promised Messiah. I mean, you could say that the Apostles were the first Messianics, in a way. A modern day Messianic would be someone from Jews for Jesus, for example. They aren’t the only group, just perhaps the best known.

          It’s grown to include Gentiles though. Many Christian religions don’t focus on the Jewishness of Christ, for whatever reason. Sometimes Christians from those faiths often turn to Messianism to learn more about Christ’s Jewishness. It’s not a conversion to Judaism or anything like that. It’s more of an embracing, if you will, of Biblical history, and the Jewishness of Jesus.

          So, some might say it’s kind of a blend of Christianity and Judaism, sort of. My husband and I like to think of it as the best of both worlds. 🙂

          Does that help?
