Rabbi 'Loves Christmas'

I'm waiting to get on my plane, and caught this article. Sort of interesting, I don't have time to deconsturct it --- but here's a sample.

I also love the baby Jesus. I don't love him as my Messiah, but I love him as the Messiah for my Christian friends, and I love their story. I love that, just like God appeared to Moses in a humble bush, the Christian Messiah was born in a humble manger. I love that both his birth and his death—and of course his resurrection for my Christian friends—are the objects of their two greatest holidays.
