Jewish holiday for congress II

An anonymous commenter notes that Rosh Hashana is actually one of the Big Jewish holidays. I'm not sure that he/she is factually correct in saying it is one of the big two, but I will correct myself and say that it is significant - probably 4th by observance rates and 2nd in terms of 'philosophical importance' (although I sugest the former is the one that matters in this case).

I know that congress is something like 8% Jewish - does anyone know how many of them are practicing? In the country I think it is about 51% so can I assume 4%? Anyway, even if it was christmas and the vast majority of members celebrated it - I'd still say they should work through on this bill.
