Re: B&H Closes soon - Last Chance

I don't have to Google anything. Succos is a two-day holiday. B&H will open for ordering again on Tuesday evening.

The holiday lasts seven days (eight in the diaspora). The first day (and second in the diaspora) is a sabbath-like yom tov when work is forbidden, followed by the intermediate Chol Hamoed and Shemini Atzeret. The Hebrew word sukkōt is the plural of sukkah, "booth or tabernacle", which is a walled structure covered with skhakh (plant material such as leafy tree overgrowth or palm leaves).

There was an article in the NYTimes this week about emergency room visits due to accidents building the Sukkah.

Even so, while my religious beliefs are different from those practiced by B&H, I still appreciate their integrity and willingness to stand by what they believe. It speaks to their trustworthiness, which is very important in business.

Ah, I understand! Subtle distinction; they're not necessarily moral because because of their religious beliefs, but the fact that they're willing to take a financial hit for their beliefs is an indicator that they're not just out to make a buck at any cost. I'll buy that!

Its a seven day holiday followed by Simchat Torah where the end of the Torah is completed and they begin reading again from the beginning Genesis. Its a very happy holiday.

Just Google 2012 Jewish Holiday's for a calendar.
