It’s Halloween. Its Shabbas. What’s a good Jew to do?

Hand out challah rolls? Dress as the Sabbath bride?

JTA has an op-ed about letting your kids go trick-or-treating, and we had three educators weigh in on the debate last year.

But I’m happy to celebrate both. Trick-or-treaters are allowed while the sun is still out (the safest time to go), and Shabbas after the candles are lit.

I guess I should be thankful that Daylight Savings Time didn’t happen last week. Nothing says being a bad neighbor like ceasing the candy distribution at 4:30 pm.
