I think we have to be really careful doing any kind of religious stuff.  On the one hand, a lot of Jewish folks walk by our occupation every day and it'd be a cool way to get them to participate. On the other hand, there's not much really "Rosh Hashannah-y" stuff that we can do.

Unless somebody knows a social justice-oriented Rabbi who wants to come out and preach to passers-by about why the occupation is so important.  It would get folks to stop and reconsider their prejudices about who we are.

Cool,

Jon

Can't we keep religion out of this?  The US democracy was based on a separation of church and state.  Isn't Occupy Wall Street a political protest?  I see endless complications once you open that door.
