"Press Secretary, National Jewish Democratic Council" pronounces Glenn Beck "The Grinch Who Stole Yom Kippur"

It seems that Beck wants to make September 28th "a day of Fast and Prayer for the Republic" and to Aaron Keyak that's "co-opting Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year." What does he propose to do about it?
All of this is why the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) will be sending Beck a Jewish New Years card and will be providing Beck a Jewish Calendar for 5770 to post in his office so he's aware of all the Jewish holidays for the upcoming year. Make sure Beck understands the importance of these holidays! Sign your name to the New Years greeting that will accompany the calendar.
Good going, Glenn! You've got the National Jewish Democratic Council all worked up about being "aware of all the Jewish holidays." Please make up an event so that, besides Yom Kippur, they will also get worked up about Shavuos. Oh, and please announce that any Jew wishing to participate in your "day of Fast and Prayer" should consult MyZmanim for the relevant times in his area to begin and end the fast.
