Home for the holidays

I was eating a stale Danish in NYU Medical Center's sukkah this morning. On the wall, a notice painstakingly informing the sukkah user that the hut was built by heymishe yidn, the term used by Yiddish-speaking Chasidim to refer to themselves. (The English and Hebrew notices didn't include this fact, by the way.)

But what's this hanging from the ceiling? A red and gold plastic ribbon with a golden bell?

In the heimische sukkah, a heimische Christmas decoration!

  1. Because what do heymishe yidn know from Christmas?
