Here is my Thanksgiving d'var Torah:
Nothing is by chance. What is one way to say thanks and praise to Hashem in Hebrew? Hodu.
How do you say Turkey (the bird) in Hebrew? Hodu.
Where did Columbus think he was going before landing in North America? India, which in Hebrew is... Hodu.
I have extreme Hakaras HaTov to the United States. All American Jews should. America is truly a special country and I don't take my liberties and fredoms lightly. I am proud to be a citizen.
But here's my question: When I make aliyah, do I have to hold two days of Thanksgiving?
