On Christmas Eve, many Jewish families gather around the table for a traditional Christmas meal — at the local Chinese restaurant.

In Boston, "Moo Shu Jew" is celebrating its fifth year. The dinner and a show combo takes place in the heart of Boston's Chinatown and features performances by Jewish stand-up comedians. Cory Kahaney, the creator of Moo Shu Jew, joins us to tell us more about the event.

Joyce Antler, a professor of American Jewish history and culture, also joins us to shed a little more light on the cultural phenomenon itself.
