Sefeika D’Yoma[edit]

Hi there StevenJ81: Sefeika D’Yoma is a new article I have just written up (it is important to help understanding what Shemnini Atzeret is about in relation to Hoshana Rabba and Simchas Torah) and see how you can weave it in. Please help by improving with sources and more information (if you have time...) Thanks and keep up your great work!!! Shabbat Shalom. IZAK (talk) 10:20, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Hebrew calendar[edit]

Yes. It looks like the product of somebody's personal study of the Secrets Hidden in the Bible—a prime example of fringe material. A. Parrot (talk) 18:49, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

New Jersey thanks and some Jewish geography[edit]

Thanks for your work updating the article for 18th Legislative District (New Jersey). I had seen your name regarding the Shemini Atzeret article (if I recall correctly) and when I saw you making New Jersey articles my antennae picked up, as there aren't too many editors who share that combination of topics. If you're in the 18th District I can probably narrow you down to a few places, and if you're ever up north in the 37th District maybe we could meet for a cup of coffee or some deli.

I do live in the 18th, but I do get up your way from time to time. (Two of my three sons went to a well-known high school in your district.) I'd love to, probably after Chanukah. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:11, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
It would be my pleasure. Rarely do I have an opportunity to mix my Wikipedia interests in New Jersey political geography, Judaism, caffeinated beverages and pickled or smoked beef byproducts. Feel free to reach me on my talk page or via email. Alansohn (talk) 16:20, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Shemini Atzeret delisting[edit]

Thank you for your patience with this process. I think the decision to delist for now was sensible since the article is half way through an overhaul, so is rather confused. This way it can be improved without any sense of pressure, then renominated later. It is a tough challenge: giving a clear and concise explanation to the general reader while also giving accurate coverage of all the main points. I have no idea how to determine the optimum level of detail. Pushing detail towards the back may help, like appendices, giving the casual reader what they are likely to want without forcing them to read the whole thing.

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Sfeka d'yoma may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
