Birthdays and Jewish Holidays Collide

My daughter, Emma, is 17 today (Yom Kippur).  She was born on Rosh Hashanah.

My other daughter, Sarah, turned 27 on Saturday.  She was born on Yom Kippur.

Technically, then, this is the birthday for Sarah and Emma (Emma on the Roman calendar; Sarah on the Jewish calendar).

My son, Aaron, missed the Jewish holidays completely.  His 25th was on Bastille Day.  (All of his birthdays are on Bastille day, since both celebrations use the same calendar).

Lots of Mitzvah’s in this family.  Our baby is 17.  Where did all that time go?
