It's in the Cards: Embracing the Sacred Ambivalence of Interfaith Holiday Greetings

By Bradley Hirschfield

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2003

In light of the emergence of interfaith holiday cards, the author discusses how and why some may see the cards as a form of syncretism. But her asserts that being able to represent two or more religions on one holiday card may represent how those of different religions have gained a sense of mutual respect and affection for one another to be able to break the boundaries between their seasonal celebrations.
