The fall quarter at most UC campuses will start a week later than usual and winter break will be a week shorter in the 2014-15 school year as the schools seek to avoid beginning their terms during Jewish High Holidays. Most UC campuses will start fall classes Oct. 2 and the fall quarter will end Dec. 19, giving students two weeks of vacation before the winter quarter begins Jan. 5. Officials said the schedule change was in line with a policy that was issued in 2007 in response to complaints from Jewish families that “move in” days at UC dorms had been held on the Jewish High Holidays.

Rabbis have spent months preparing their high-holiday talks. Kosher markets have long since stocked their shelves for the season, and families have bought their tickets to tonight's services for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which starts at sunset with Kol Nidre services. The last-minute details fall to synagogue office managers, who have to make the extensive, seemingly endless preparations for the temple's busiest time in the year.

It's become tradition at my house to make new traditions, especially during Rosh Hashana, which begins today at sundown. Unlike the holiday meal for Passover, with its ingredient restrictions, the feast for the Jewish New Year is guided by symbolism: Food should be sweet for a sweet new year, and it should highlight the holiday's theme of renewal. Across the globe, Jews will dip apples or challah into honey, eat carrots cut into coin-like rounds and accent dishes with pomegranates.

As the High Holidays begin this evening with Rosh Hashana, several Jewish groups have found a way to hit two concerns of modern Judaism with a single prayer service. Or rather, a singles prayer service, a low-cost one. Judaism has been looking for ways to bring more of its own back to the fold after a disaffection in the past couple of decades with synagogue membership. Single people are even less likely to join synagogues, which tend to be family-oriented.

Re: The article on Chabad's request for a conditional-use permit to worship in a house in Oak Park. I live in Oak Park and represent the Medea Creek Neighborhood Alliance in opposing Chabad's request to use a house in Oak Park as a temple and education center. The following facts will help round out your article of Sept. 25: 1. I and other members of MCNA are Jewish. 2. There are so many Jews in Oak Park that the public schools close for the Jewish High Holidays. 3. The overwhelming majority of residents are opposed to Chabad's use of the house but otherwise support Chabad, which peacefully used commercial space in Oak Park for six years without opposition or incidents of anti-Semitism.

Could you have been so excited about the imminence of the Jewish High Holidays that you made the great French design house Paco Rabanne into Paco "Rabin" in the fascinating feature about Cameron Silver and his vintage shop, Decades, on Melrose Avenue ("Clothes Force," by Mary McNamara, Aug. 29)? The late Dinah Shore, for whom I worked in the '70s, wore Rabanne, and I can still envision the silver-trimmed bottles at her house. Since that was the first time I'd seen or heard the name, it stuck with me. It's a delight to see how successful Silver has become.

The Orange County office of the Anti-Defamation League seemed a bit extravagant in attributing a "callus and uncompromising attitude . . . against the Jewish community" to the Irvine Harvest Festival's scheduling its annual event during Jewish High Holidays. It suggests a kind of paranoia unbecoming a religious community in an enlightened time and place like this era in this place. I am not a resident of Irvine. If the public calendar there were to regard all the possible coincidences of public events with the observances of the various religious communities, time would stand still.

The Sept. 20 article "Problem, Solution on Jewish High Holidays" creates a misconception concerning Judaism and money. The Jewish community does not turn away due to a lack of money anyone wishing to pray. Jews are not permitted to collect money on religious holidays, such as Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur or the Sabbath. Synagogues need money to pay the utilities, staff and the mortgage, yet they cannot solicit money during religious services as is the practice by other religious groups.

September 22, 1996 | RABBI ARNOLD RACHLIS, Rabbi Arnold Rachlis is spiritual leader of University Synagogue in Irvine
Non-Christians are quite familiar with the meaning and observances of Christianity, especially at such pivotal moments as Christmas and Easter. While most of us refrain from celebrating Christmas, we welcome the spirit of the season. Even without taking these holidays as our own, non-Christians benefit from the holiday spirit by being reminded of similar values within their own traditions. The Jewish High Holidays are now upon us.

One of the passages from our law that we read during the Jewish High Holidays (from Leviticus) commands us to leave a portion of our fields unharvested, not to go back over the picking to get the fruit we missed the first time through, to leave something to gather for the poor, the needy, the "gleaners." When I first noticed Santa Monica's wandering poor picking through my recycling, I too was indignant. "Hey! That stuff belongs to the city--to pay for the recycling program!" But recycling has its own rewards--as does sharing our recyclables--and if there is a shortfall of revenues in the city's program, let the fortunate ones among us make up the difference.
