Though they are both sects of Islam, integrally, they are almost two different religions. The restaurant is located at 1843 Glenview Road in Glenview. Numbers like these are the ones that create problems.
I usually don’t celebrate Jewish holidays since most of my friends practice other religions. When I was in high school growing up on the east coast one of my friends in Boy Scouts had brought apples and honey to school with him for lunch. I asked why he suddenly changed his diet and he said it was because he and his family were celebrating the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah.
Now I am about as Jewish as my dog. I’m a bad Jew. I can’t tell you what the Rosh in Rosh Hashanah is, or exactly what the Yom is in front of the Kapur. The closest I get to “Yom”ing is when I “ohmmm” in my yoga class.
A little hole shouldn’t be a problem, right? Glue and plaster will do the trick! Not so fast. Once a shofar has a hole or crack in it, it cannot be mended — it is rendered prohibited on the spot and cannot be used in a synagogue on Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur.
Couples who have a certain date in mind don’t have to bother with seasons or discounts.

The CFDA greatly respects and understands the importance of this holiday but, given the international calendar of European shows directly after New York, we do not have the option to shift the dates later. We realize that the observance of the holiday will impact some in their ability to attend or present shows-but we are asking that everyone please work with us to make this situation work as best as possible.
So you meet your Jewish friends walking along the street this week. What are acceptable ways for non-Jewish people to respectfully convey warm wishes to them for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement, reseptively)?
While the days may still be warm, the nights in September can be chilly. Your best bet is either an early outdoor ceremony earlier in the afternoon and then a reception inside or an all indoor ceremony. Make a note in your wedding invitation about your ceremony and reception plans so guests can be prepared and dress accordingly.
Follow the guide given above to ensure that you purchase an authentic and a good quality shofar. A shofar is something which you wouldn’t buy often during your life time and hence you should invest proper time in making the decision. Do some research on the internet and learn more about shofars before you invest in one.
