Unexpected phone solicitations
This morning, I received a telephone solicitation from the DNC--as we were getting ready to leave for synagogue. I don't know; if there were any secular organization that would be particularly aware that today is a Jewish high holy day, I would have expected it to be the Democratic Party.

Howard, maybe they couldn't tell you are Jewish by your last name? :-) Shanah tova, Len.

Did you answer the phone? :-)
I think that the prohibition on work during Rosh Hashana applies only to occupational work, as opposed to the much broader interpretation of prohibited "work" on Shabbat. I'm not sure about this, but perhaps that would allow you to use electronic/telephonic means and even solicit/exchange money. Others more in the know can correct me if I'm wrong.
