I beg people not to accept the seasonal ritual of well-timed charity on Christmas Eve. It's blasphemy.
Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
In 1934, the American Jewish charities offered to find homes for 300 German refugee children. We were on the SS Washington, bound for New York, Christmas 1934.
Christmas day is a day of joy and charity. May God make you very rich in both.
Where charity stands watching and faith holds wide the door the dark night wakes - the glory breaks, Christmas comes once more.
I love to observe Christmas in quietude, humility, benevolence, charity, letting good will towards man, eloquent silence, prayer, and praise express my conception of Truth's appearing.
Charity begins at home, but should not end there.
Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
