One summary of a current event for Judaism is about israel luanching a campain to make Judaism's holiest day (Yom Kippur) a UN holiday. The Israel's ambassador Ron Prosor sent a letter to all the UN members stating that their calendar only recognizes Islam and Christian holidays and he wanted Judaism to be recognized to. Prosor asked 192 more ambassadors to join the campain by signing a letter saying that the UN should recognize Yom Kippur. He thinks it's not fair that Jewish workers in the UN have to work Yom Kippur. Ron Prosor is still fighting for the holiday, but it's not going well since Israel has not had the best relationship between the UN, yet he will keep on trying.
