Jews have nothing to do with Thanksgiving. There are certainly Liberal Jews in the USA who celebrate Thanksgiving, but it is not a Jewish holiday or a Jewish-inspired holiday.

How do Jewish people celebrate Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is an American/Canadian holiday. Because it is a civil holiday, some Jewish people celebrate it pretty much as all North American do. There is no commandment NOT to celebrate a civil holiday, and like all people, Jewish folk love to throw a party. Yes, there is Thanksgiving to God, and the meals are kosher. Freedom is worth celebrating. While the vast majority of American Jews celebrate Thanksgiving, few Canadian Jews do. By contrast, nearly all American Jews - even many Orthodox Jews - celebrate American Thanksgiving. There are several reasons for this: 1) Canadian Thanksgiving falls in early October it is often overshadowed by Jewish holidays like Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, or Sukkot (the latter being a sort of Jewish Thanksgiving anyway). While there is no prohibition on celebrating Thanksgiving, due to timing and other cultural factors, few Canadian Jews celebrate the holiday. 2) Canadian Jews as a whole are less assimilated than American Jews. They also tend to have been later arrivals (on average, families of American Jews have been in North America about 30 years longer than the families of Canadian Jews). 3) Canadian Thanksgiving is a smaller holiday in general, more recently created, and without the same cultural status in Canada that American Thanksgiving has in the US.
