"Schmatte Week Vs. Rosh Hashanah"

Check this out:
Schmatte Week Vs. Rosh Hashanah
Will New York, unlike Paris, respect a Jewish holy day?
Why is that week different from all others? Members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America recently received a memo discussing options for rescheduling next fall’s Fashion Week, which coincides with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Designers currently slated to show on the holy day, September 13, include Calvin Klein (Jew!), Zac Posen (Jew!), and Vera Wang (married to a Jew!). The memo presents three alternatives: no change, moving it forward two days, or delaying it until October. It seems likely, insiders say, that the CFDA’s going to go with option two and bump up Fashion Week to September 5 through 12, ending before sunset. “It’s a courtesy to the industry, which has a large number of Jewish people involved, not to present shows on the holiest days of the calendar, as the French did last season, showing over Yom Kippur,” says Suzy Menkes (Jew!), fashion editor of the International Herald Tribune. The CFDA is planning to review all responses to the memo before making any definite changes. CFDA president (and Jew!) Diane Von Furstenberg “doesn’t have strong feelings either way and wants the decision to be a collective agreement between designers.”
It's nice to see that it's easier to be a Jew in the "Schmatte business" in New York than it is in Paris - though I imagine it's easier to be any kind of Jew in New York than in Paris.

OM, your post, while interesting, reads like a Neo-Nazi conspiracy blog...
The JEWS control the fashion industry!!
Calvin Klein (Jew!),
Zac Posen (Jew!),
Vera Wang (married to a Jew!)
Suzy Menkes (Jew!)
CFDA president (and Jew!) Diane Von Furstenberg
It just sounds so harsh - JEW!
Anyway, it's not that shocking that these completely secular JEWS(!) are willing to work on a day that has very little meaning for them.

Jews care. Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh LaZeh. For most of those people, the Yamim Noraim are the only time during the year that they have any contact at all with Judaism. To sever that small bit of contact would be a bad thing.

Ummm, Anonymous 11:48am, did you happen to notice that the item you're objecting to was actually published in New York Magazine, and not written by OM?

My best friend is Jewish, and he always do the same thing: visiting the blog, now I know why he comes, the amount of information isn't bad enough and also the style to redact the post is very interesting.
