My favorite site. The Jewish holidays do turn off their ordering for some reason?

Theyr'e very strict about not doing business on their religious holidays - that includes internet business, even if the store is closed and there are no employees there.

They are actually forbidden by Jewish law from doing business on the Sabbath and on Jewish holidays.

Maybe, but not all Jewish run businesses follow this as strictly as B&H; for example Adorama's online shopping is still active even though the store is closed.  It's not a bad thing, and B&H communicates it very clearly.

In addition to normal closing of business during the Sabbath, this might also be philosophical in that by shutting down ordering, they are not responsible for encouraging others to violate the Sabbath.

Optional trivia for anyone who cares  ---

The children of Israel had been slaves in Egypt for about 400 years before being delivered by the power of God through Moses. Soon after their deliverance, God gave them one day off every week. Slaves don't get days off. This was so important that it was made to be the sign of the covenant between them and God. That and a bunch of other instructions, like sanitation, diet, study, dress, etc. differentiated them from other people groups and gave advantages that helped them survive, and in some cases notably better than other people groups (and created jealousy too).

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day... Never Forget.
