From Greene to Green Party: Another Epic Jewish Holiday Greeting Mess-Up

UK Labour Party: Let’s tweet out an inappropriate Jewish holiday greeting.

Rashida Tlaib: Hold my Taybeh.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: Hold my space laser Budweiser.

Brighton and Hove Green Party: Hold our soy milk.

To break this down for you: not only have they included the Chanukiah (Chanukah candelabrum) – which has nothing to do with Yom Kippur – but Yom Kippur is the most solemn day in the Jewish calendar. Wishing someone a Happy Yom Kippur is kind of like wishing relatives of a deceased person a happy funeral.

They have also used the Gregorian year, rather than the Jewish year 5784.

In short: those with a history of not really liking Jews or the Jewish state should – to paraphrase Will Smith – keep our Jewish holy days out of their (expletive) mouths.

Update: They have apologized for the Chanukiah. Who wants to tell them about the “Happy” Yom Kippur?
