But "you can't say you can't celebrate Christmas and be Jewish, because there's an awful lot of people doing that.""Where Jewish identity is so tenuous" to begin with, "the Christmas tree is a symbol of what the family's values are," said Steven Bayme, national director of the Contemporary Jewish Life Department at the American Jewish Committee. "It's suggestive of the very thin nature of the Jewish identity of the home."
