Item Description:

Every subject under the sun falls under the purview of Torah Law, and Christmas is no exception. Called nittul in Yiddish, Ashkenazi Jews refrained from learning Torah on Christmas Eve for both kabbalistic and pragmatic reasons. Rabbi Wein enlightens us on the facts behind this custom, and sprinkling in other interesting tidbits, he paints the broader picture of the long and precarious relationship between the Church and the Jewish people.
