The court case

Orly Taitz's site has a post with the following headline:

Attorney Orly Taitz will be challenging Obama in two states in two days: September 24 MS and September 26 in IN. Other states to follow at later dates.

There is an interesting discussion going on in the comments section as to whether Orly should be at a court case on September 26, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, with some readers weighing in on the subject.

Lea writes:

Dr. Taitz,
Various rabbis have questioned whether you are committing a grave sin by failing to follow the requirements for Yom Kippur. I have argued to them that you are exempt because you are involved in matters of national security. Do you think that is the correct argument or do you suggest I try a different argument?

Eliad writes:

Dr. Taitz can follow the holy traditions as long as she does not eat and drink for 25 hours starting the night before the Indiana hearing, does not wear leather shoes, does not bathe or wash, and does not wear any perfumes, make-up or jewelry on Yom Kippur. She is a beautiful woman, so I don’t think the abstinence from bathing, wearing jewelry, perfumes, make-up, or fancy clothes will detract from her beauty. She is also a woman of enormous strength, so I am confident that fasting will not affect her well-know legal skills. Tzom kal!!!

Personally, I feel that she should ask for an alternate date but, knowing the court system, she might be granted a date which is after the elections, which makes her case moot. What's a yid to do? Oy, vey.
