    In this day and age... heck in 8 year ago's day and age... how does this make any sense?


    Welcome to B&H Photo!
    We are temporarily not accepting orders.
    Online ordering will resume at Saturday 7:45 PM EDT.

    Do they just have like thousands of keebler elves lined up watching computer screens for the orders, stuffing boxes as they come in, quickly! Before the order scrolls off the screen! Quickly! Oh noes! We missed one!

    :confused:

    *Chris goes off to purchase his stuff from Adorama, since they are apparently willing to keep the elves working on the weekend.*

    The owners of B&H photo follow a strict Jewish faith...and I believe their temporary closing has something to do with the bunch of Jewish holidays that are going on this time of year.

    Kenny's got it right. I still buy the bulk of my equiptmnt from B&H. Good prices and never any problems.

    Well, ok, at least that explains it. I can't say I think it makes sense... but it explains it.

    It's also not nearly as funny as the keebler elf theory.

    You people are such killjoys. :)

    yea, it does seem strange that they cant take orders and such, but the reason is because during Yom Kippur the same rules as sabbath appley...All Sabbath-like work restrictions. In addition, there are special restrictions against eating, washing, annointing, marital relations and wearing leather shoes

    And B&H is does not accept any orders on Saturdays. As far as I know this has been going on for years.
     
  9. I grew up around Hasidic Jews, so I understand what they do... and yes, it's pretty much Keebler elves - dressed in black. Go to the store if you're ever in New York, it's a sight to see. But don't bother going on Saturdays.

    By the way, Adorama is also run by Hasids. I think theire site shuts down for Shabbat and the holidays as well...

    Since when is ignoring goyim for a day work?

    One could argue that putting the message up for every customer is more work than just letting the order sit there until they get back.

    If as crazy as they get is taking a few days off that's fine with me. Some folks get real nutty with their religion...

    9/11
    suicide bombings
    the President of the USA starts a war on a mission from God
    honor killings
    all the senseless killing in the middle east in general
