Multicultural Celebration of the Winter Holidays on Eastern Standard

Dec 7, 2016

At this time of the year, we tend to focus on celebrations of our own religions or cultures. But the winter holidays can also bring people of differing backgrounds together.

Dr. Nadia Rasheed, Pastor Anthony Everitt, Host John Hingsbergen, and Rabbi Moshe Smolkin sat around the mics for a discussion of multicultural faiths and winter celebrations for this week's Eastern Standard
