Do we have to change the clocks before Purim?
« on: March 04, 2020, 12:10:09 AM »
I just realized that itís crazy to change the clocks this motzai shabbos. It means tanis esther is longer ,  megillaís gonna end very late and just gives a late start to any parties or people going collecting!
Any way to not change the clocks till Purim night or maybe shushan Purim? Can we coordinate together and not change the clocks??

Sure, let's all agree to change them next Wednesday.

Anyway  to get everyone on the same page, would be confusing if everyoneís running on different times.
We should probably start a petition or something like that

Good idea. They need to give in on one, or drop the bag ban or postpone daylight savings, we should also have a say here.

There will be so many more people making zman krias shma and zman tfila because the clock changes before purim.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Once you're going this route, just wait to change it until after the Pesach sedarim the way it was years ago.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
