Here Comes the Sun....

...or at least more of it. Seems that Congress wants to extend Daylight Savings Time an extra 2 months by starting it on begining of March and ending it at the end of November.

I'm still trying to figure out if this is good for observant Jews. Shabbos would start and end latter, which is especially good in November, where Shabbos starts 4:30-5:00. Taanis Esther would be an hour longer, that's not so good.

But the biggest problem I see is for people who daven Shachris early in the morning, for example, under the new DST system, the earliest time you can put on Tallis and T'fillin with a brocha on November 15 is around 6:45 am, and if you want to daven at Naytz, then you're gonna have to wait till almost 7:45! Not a very good situation!


ahh, but it means that in november, folks who have to rush to get home for shabbos with the possibility of getting stuck on the tappan zee and missing, might have better luck. :)
