For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.

Hot take (I guess?): it’s not the rest of the world’s responsibility to learn different religions’ holidays. Managing your team’s expectations of you is squarely your own responsibility, 100% of the time. Communicate proactively.

Cool, so the observance is not recognized as a national holiday, but the national holidays are based on Christian holidays... So, you're saying the onus is on the person to not only communicate the time off, but to also explain that not all observances are "happy" ones? Hmm.. happy veterans day, bro.

As a Jewish person I absolutely don’t expect others to know the ins and outs of our holidays, I think that’s a little ridiculous. If you’ve got time to kill, by all means fill it with researching other cultures, but we have far too much diversity in the world to expect that ppl should just know things.

like

Agree. Also, I think many people don’t truly learn things until they talk about it with a real person. Googling isn’t the same. Learning about a culture or religion that way is t nearly as meaningful

OP, I hope this post was not triggered by your personal experience, b/c if it was - it's really sad... G'mar chatima tova!

Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.

I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work.
