Apples, honey, bagels, bring them on.

But no Manishewitz. It wouldn't look good on my table.

One should never turn down a bottle of Manishewitz. Lord knows I don't.

Little known fact - the Jewish calendar is pegged to the date of Creation in Genesis, so the 5773 is based on the same number that fundamentalist Christians use when they say the world is 6000 years old.

FTFY.

Would also like to note that by the time this goes green, the sun will have gone down so the more religious East Coast Farkers won't see it.

/Screw them, that's why I'm on TF. Shana Tova.

My boyfriend is Jewish, although he's not that observant anymore, but we did have apples and honey for dessert at lunch today. It followed a very un-kosher meal of bacon cheeseburgers and french fries.

Fun fact: Carbon 14 half-life is 5,730 ± 40 years.

Well, fundamentalist Christians are idiots. Even the Roman Catholic Church believes in evolution.

This is scheduled to go "live" at sundown on the East Coast.

Uh-oh, I didn't expect to anger the mods. You are right, and I was imprecise for simplicity's sake. In Jewish custom, so as not to risk running over into the holiday itself, you start the holiday with candle lighting 18 minutes before actual sundown, so the more religious Farkers will not see this thread go live.

/please don't be mad at me.

We're not upset. We just wanted to point out why this was this thread was scheduled to go live at a seemingly random time.  Sometimes even we can be a bit too obscure.  :)

No doubt about it. The folks running B & H stand by their guiding principles, a rare thing these days. It's nice to do business with people who think that way...

I'm not the jew in the family, but is this one of those holidays where jelly donuts are acceptable? I'm all in favor of anything involving jelly donuts.
 
2012-09-16 06:41:38 PM
I mean, it sounds so made up.

HEY! The Chinese New Year is way cooler, and I didn't see a Fark headline for that/

/Born the Year of the Monkee. Happy New Year, Jewish Farkers, now turn off your appliances.

L'shanah tovah! The high holidays are the best.

My circular, honey-glazed challah just came out of the oven. It flattened. :( But oh well, there's always next year.

Sorry to hear that.
Hit me up for my cinnamon raisin break-fast challah recipe later.

"Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a "Jew" or to call a contemporary Jew an "Israelite" or a "Hebrew." The first Hebrews may not have been Jews at all," ~The Jewish Almanac (1980)

Wait, that was supposed to be a lolcat. I dunno what happened.
 
2012-09-16 07:32:25 PM
5773? But the world is only 2012 years old! It says so right in the bible!
 
2012-09-16 07:32:58 PM
No clue what that means. Guess it has to do with some kind of religious thing.
