I wonder if they use Danny’s hebcal for Unix app in their implementation.
I’m certainly not Jewish, but having had plenty of experience with religion — doesn’t this kind of defeat the point?
Aren’t most of the tedious rituals as a Jew designed to make you think about your faith all the time, every day?
