Fall Festival Parade :-(
I am letting you know that I am upset that you are holding your Fall Fetival Parade on a very somber holiday where Jews fast for the day and pray.
By holding your Fall Festival on Yom Kipper you are knowingly excluding a whole group of people. Some might even call it a prejudice against the Jewish Community. If not a prejudice, then an ignorance, since the Yom Kipper holiday is prominently displayed on all American calendars.
In a day and age where communities are diverse and we are constantly trying to teach our children about tolerance and acceptance of others it is appalling to me that such an important holiday for Jews is completely disregarded by members of our community.
Why would children respect the teachings of tolerance and acceptance if the leaders of our community do not.
Shame on you.
