Being a Jew is a matter of struggling with your Jewish identity and many Jews in America seem to be doing this. This film is a fascinating look at secular, non-affiliated Jews and their connection to Judaism. Many of them grew up in homes that had a Christmas tree as well as Chanukiahs.

They often celebrate the rituals and observances of Christian holidays as well as Jewish ones. Are these assimilated Jews a vanishing species, or do they simply have a way of looking at their Judaism through a different lens Jules Feiffer, father of the filmmaker, offers fascinating observations and comments on his own upbringing.
