"It follows the old joke - and truism - that Jews do a movie and Chinese food on Christmas," says Tamah Kushner, executive director of the congregation.
The dinner-and-a-movie special on December 25 includes a gourmet kosher catered Chinese buffet, and a showing of the movie "Yentl." Dinner begins at 5:00 p.m. at the temple.
