Of course it is their prerogative and you have to admire them for their commitment and steadfastness.

I kind of got used to ‘BuyDig‘ (a.k.a. ‘Beach Camera‘) closing for Jewish holidays when I used to buy cameras from them. But, I don’t remember them ever closing for that long.

No big deal. I do not recall buying anything major from ‘B&H’ though I used to enjoy getting their thick, and jam-packed printed catalogue.

This is just a heads up.

Happy Purim 2016 — One Jewish Holiday Where One Can Safely Say ‘Happy’.

by Anura Guruge


Esther

“The Banquet of Esther and Ahasuerus” and the story of Purim is told in the Biblical book of Esther.


Given that I am a bit slow on the uptake, despite efforts by a number of good Jews, I have never been able to keep the Jewish holidays straight and always worry that I might use the wrong appellation, in particular ‘happy’, when sending a Jewish person a greeting on a Jewish holidays. In the same I know NOT to wish any thinking Christians ‘Happy Good Friday’ — ‘Happy’, as it relates to Easter, only applicable on Sunday. But wish Purim, I gather, though I could still be wrong, that the correct and appropriate greeting is indeed Happy Purim. So Happy Purim.
