PHOTO: 'Bama synagogue warns football fans not to spoil Yom Kippur
Yom Kippur is the most important holiday on the Jewish calendar, and one synagogue in Alabama is taking extra precaution to avoid spoiling any of the day's SEC games.
Translated from Hebrew, Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement,” but because of the holiday which falls on Sept. 14 (the same date as this year’s ‘Bama-TAMU game), Jewish football fans in Alabama won’t be able to atone (or cheer) for last year’s loss to Texas A&M.
In fact, Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham, Alabama was so concerned with tarnishing the holiday, a day typically dedicated to repenting, that they issued a notice forbidding any dissemination of the scores of next Saturday’s games. That includes both Alabama-Texas A&M as well as Auburn-Mississippi State.
“On Yom Kippur, and the hours afterward, we will not discuss or even insinuate the scores of football games… NO SCORES, or high fives, or Roll Tides or War Eagles."
