Is scheduling soccer team pictures on a major Jewish holiday okay?
I hate being put in this position. I'm damned if I do (because skipping temple for soccer pics definitely isn't kosher) and damned if I don't (because the kids will be excluded from their team pictures).
I can't help but think they would NEVER schedule soccer pictures on Easter Sunday or Christmas ... but scheduling them on a High Holy Day in the Jewish religion seems to be no biggie.
I sent a letter to the soccer commissioner, but so far ... crickets. Haven't heard a peep.
What do you think ... should I let them take the pictures and go to temple afterwards, or skip the pictures in honor of the High Holy Day?
