Thanksgiving is a very Jewish thing.
The concept of Hakarat Hatov - recognizing kindness - is a valued Jewish tradition. In fact, it may be no secret that the Hebrew word for Turkey is "Hodu" which also means to give thanks as we say regularly in Hallel.
The difference we experience is that we need not designate a specific day or meal for this value to ring true. Indeed, there are special holidays and offerings that have to do with giving "
Todah," but every day is a day we give thanks. We recite daily in the Shemoneh Esrei "Modim Anachnu Lach" how we owe all that we have to the kindness of Hashem.
On this American Holiday weekend, let us join the world in doing what we do all the time. Let us appreciate the bounty and good fortune in our lives. Let us share that good will with those less fortunate. Like we always do!
