Happy first day of Hanukkah from your friends at Hergo.

Jewish communities in the United States celebrate the first day of Hanukkah on the 25th day of the month of Kislev in the Jewish calendar. The Hanukkah period lasts for eight days and is celebrated from the 25th day of Kislev to the second day of Tevet. The first night of Hanukkah (or Chanukah) starts with special blessings at sunset the day before the 25th of Kislev. Many Jewish people light the menorah, also known as the hanukiah (or chanukkiyah), which is a type of candelabrum.

Many Americans of Jewish faith also eat food fried in olive oil, such as potato cakes, and different fried breads. Hanukkah dishes include sufganiot (Hanukkah donuts), potato latkes (pancakes), mandelbrot (this can be sliced like a hard bread), and rugelach (pastry that with different fillings).

The first day of Hanukkah is the start of a celebratory period in which a four-sided toy called dreidel is used for games. The first night of Hanukkah is also a night when people sing traditional songs to celebrate Hanukkah. Gift-giving is also popular at this time of the year.

So, we made it to the end of the week and things have been hopping here at Hergo! We’re gearing up for a nice open racking project with one of our long-time valued customers and our team has just completed an installation of some Hergo Tech Benches down in Quantico, VA. The client tells us they are “tickled pink” with the end result.

On the weather front - it has stopped raining here in NYC…FINALLY!

Oh…and one more thing…did you know a giraffe can clean its ears with its 21-inch tongue?! How is that for a nice useless fact for Friday?

 Have a happy weekend!

Happy Columbus Day everyone!

Columbus Day, which is annually on the second Monday of October, remembers Christopher Columbus' arrival to the Americas on October 12, 1492. This holiday is controversial because the European settlement in the Americas led to the demise of the history and culture of the indigenous peoples.

Officially, the people of the USA are invited to celebrate the anniversary of the discovery of their country with church services and other activities. In some towns and cities, special church services, parades and large events are held. Most celebrations are concentrated around the Italian-American community. The celebrations in New York and San Francisco are particularly noteworthy. In Hawaii Columbus Day is also known as Landing Day or Discoverer's Day.

Not all parts of the United States celebrate Columbus Day. It is not a public holiday in some states such as California, Oregon, Nevada and Hawaii. Moreover, Native Americans’ Day is celebrated in South Dakota, while Indigenous People’s Day is celebrated in Berkeley, California.

Rosh HaShanah Greetings from your friends at Hergo.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and is a major holiday on the Jewish calendar. Wishing your Jewish friends a "Happy New Year" is as easy as saying "L'Shana Tova," which means "For a Good Year" in Hebrew.

Rosh Hashanah is not traditionally a gift-giving holiday but if you are invited to someone's home and want to bring something, sweet foods make thoughtful Rosh Hashanah gifts. Sweets are thought to symbolize wishes for a sweet new year and it's for this reason that Jews will often dip apples in honey on Rosh Hashanah. 

Kosher chocolates & candies, baked goods or fruit (especially apples or pomegranates) are also excellent Rosh Hashanah gifts. 

Judaica shops also sell special decorative honey dishes for Rosh Hashanah.
