The Christian Noob (n00b)

born & raised Catholic, now going to a Presbyterian church & still learning

this old Jewish town

Without a doubt, NYC is a (mostly) Jewish town. Some of city laws are based on Jewish traditions — like a child’s religion being based on the mother’s faith.

Today’s in Rosh Hashanah — the Jewish new year (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosh_Hashanah). The city doesn’t seem as chaotic as other days. Many people are on holiday at home or temple.

Well all this doesn’t mean that mostly everyone here’s Jewish (although a good percent, especially in Brooklyn, Rego Park, etc). There are many religions and faiths. For the most part, most of us get along.

As a Christian, I celebrate Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Christmas and New Year’s day — aside from the holidays that take place on Sundays like Pentecost.
