To Sylvester or not: Every year, there is a lively debate over whether or not it is kosher, moral, PC, or otherwise OK to celebrate New Year’s Eve (aka Sylvester, thanks to our Russian olim). Yes, it is a decidedly non-Jewish custom, though it’s true roots are more Roman than Christian. While we use the Hebrew lunar calendar, we also are part of the modern western world, and use the Gregorian calendar. That is, it may not be ours, but we can’t ignore its existence, and the end of a calendar year is a noticeable milestone and it is human nature to want to acknowledge it. But for those who want to party hearty, they face a normal work day on 1 January!
