I am so excited for this!! I love Jewish Jim. And I'm looking forward to Jim and Pam doing this project together. Michael was written so perfectly and it makes perfect sense why Jim never told him he was Jewish. Haha
Can't wait for more!!

Huh. You know, I *do* think I know whose recipe this is.
So you're saying instead of just one chapter... we're getting EIGHT crazy nights? Or at least four? VERY much in the spirit of the holiday.
Okay, some stuff I love about this starts with the building off of the Randall scandal, because you know what? Almost certainly also true of canon Randall. And Jim's casual use of Yiddish in his internal monologue is all too real.
The early hints of holiday episodes yet to come are fun, and I am now badly resentful we never got a Dia De Los Muertos episode of The Office.
That was a VERY canon-quality reference to Dwight's Nazi grandpa. (Because Dwight has a Nazi grandpa.) Also, very much canon-quality cringe in this meeting. I was mildly pleased The Office never acknowledged any of its characters were Jewish for a second there.
Presenting the food of Hannukah is both very Jim and Pam slackerish AND very appropriate for their presentation. Kudos.
Your research has paid off! Very good stuff so far. And I am enjoying the heck out of it.

Loving this already and can’t wait for the next chapter! As Maxine said, very clever title here and I’m hoping that means we’re getting 3 more chapters! If you need any help with references, I’m very happy to help. Excited for more!

Oh I'm kvelling. As a Hanukkah celebrator myself, I do love when Jewish Jim pops into fics. (Halpert can be a variant of Halpern which is a Jewish surname - but I like that you have his mom being Jewish becasue you got it ABSOLUTELY correct that it passes down the maternal side and therefore he is half-jewish-but-techincally-all-Jewish.
I am delighted that Pam and Jim are going to be working on this presentation together, but equally excited to see what Michael presents on boxing day - the little bit with the boxingdayreseach-dot-blogspot-dot-com brought a smile to my face.
Looking forward to what is to come.
Oh and must mention Kelly and her Christmakah which she knows from TV and Dwight and his Belschnikel also great use of them.
