The forthcoming book entitled: "Thanksgiving Torah: Jewish Reflections on an American Holiday", edited by Rabbi Menachem Creditor, explores the intersection between Jewish heritage and American values. Thanksgiving Torah deals with themes of: how we tell our stories, how ritual brings people together, how a Jew celebrates as part of a greater society, how Jewish citizens are called to civic engagement, how heritage can endure even when a narrative changes over time, and much more. There are several "Jewish Thanksgiving Prayers", and a children's story. (more submissions along these lines are welcome as well.)
