That's got nothing on Syrian Time! Jews in the NYC area have been known to send out two different types of invitations to weddings, bar/bat mitzvas, etc: one to non-Syrians, with the time marked a little bit early. (so if it's supposed to start around 10, the invitations would say 9:30) and one to Syrians, with the time marked about two to three HOURS early (if it starts at 10, the invitations would say 7 or 8), so that everyone will get there around the same time :) -Stephen (Steg) "kibbeh kibbeh lahhmajin, lahhmajin, lahhmajin..." ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
