When is Rosh Hashanah, indeed. I wonder how it will be celebrated in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisa, etc. Maybe a suicide bombing or two, or perhaps the storming of another embassy. Gotta love Islam... the "religion of peace"

Rosh HaShanah in 2012 will start on Monday, the 17th of September and will continue for 2 days until Tuesday, the 18th of September. Note that in the Jewish calendar, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews will celebrate Rosh Hashanah on the sunset of Sunday, the 16th of September.

Yeah, but I think theres a ballgame or something that day. Muslims and Jews have alot in common. They cant eat pork, they rely on foreign aid, and they are constantly feuding. I think a Jew is a Muslim with a higher IQ.
