FaithFULL: The Theology of Hanukkah and Christmas

December 1 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Hanukkah and Christmas: two very different holidays that share an overlap of timing, food, some gifts, and anything else? What exactly is at the heart of both of these holidays? Let’s take Hanukkah and Christmas a little deeper and explore the theological differences between them with 18Doors’ Rabbi Steven Philp of Mishkan along with a pastor. Bring the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about these holidays, and find out what these theological differences can mean in your interfaith home.

Meet Rabbi Steven Philp

Steven Philp is an Associate Rabbi at Mishkan Chicago. He was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary where he was a Wexner Graduate Fellow. Steven earned an M.St. in Jewish Studies from the University of Oxford and an M.Div. and M.S.W. from the University of Chicago. Steven grew up in California and Hawaii, as a Roman Catholic with a strong Protestant heritage. He became passionate about interfaith work while in college, a path that eventually led him to convert to Judaism. Steven is excited to work with 18Doors, helping others find communities that affirm their whole selves. He currently lives in Lakeview with his husband Toby, cat Miso and dog Momilani.
