    Honestly guys, this is not a good start.

    I know there was probably not any evil intent but so far, this may be the most insulting holiday thread in the history of the internet.

    Most orthodox shuls (synagogues) sell seats (that is, reservations for particular seats in the synagogue) during the high holidays, both as a major fundraiser and for practical reasons (people tend to have many more guests, and more people show up in general, so its important to have pre-arranged seats so families and guests can sit together). None will prevent anyone from praying without having first reserved seats, and most have extra seats available towards the back of the synagogue in case anyone needs extra. Also, if you have a money problem and can't afford the donation to the shul, you can simply say so in a private conversation with the rabbi or president of the shul, and will have seats assigned to you as though you had paid (and with nobody in the general membership knowing that you didn't).

    solemn, but absolutely happy as well - its a day that focuses on each jew's relationship with god, which is a happy thing.

    How can you focus on God with your stomach growling?

    How much of a donation do these seat reservations usually require?

    Edit: I'm sorry if that question was completely in bad taste. I mean no offense.

    And, when you can't buy the seat, there is always this:

    Hey, I deleted my reply of a picture of Ian Kinsler, where I misread the OP and thought he said "fast Jew".

    I'm sensitive like that.

    Believe me guys. It is not a Happy Holiday. If you do not know anything about a Holiday than please dont post anything about it.

    Seriously, since it is not a happy holiday, I wish my brothers here a meaningful holiday with their families.
