JewishPress Logo

  1. But Jewish holy days may upset Christians if they’re reminded how we killed Jesus. Better cancel Yom Kippur. Right?

  2. Tim Upham says:

    There is no reason for conflict, both holidays can be accommodated. Unless it is going to be morons on the streets, say "What I am is better."

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    Shouldn't the Eastern Orthodox be celebrating their holiday in mother Russia?

  4. Henri Korn says:

    Could anyone explain why there should be a conflict? People pray in silence within their own temples.

  5. Ch Hoffman says:

    It's not as bad a conflict as Thanksgiving and Chanuka on the same day – the major fight over frying the turkey or stuffing it with latkes
