Silvester

Here we are at the last day of the year 2011 already. How fast the time goes by! New year's eve is called Silvester in Israel to distinguish it from the Hebrew New Years Day, Rosh haShana which falls in September usually and is celebrated countrywide (free days). Silvester is not celebrated by many (not a free day), but some celebrate in discos and pubs, some celebrate with a family meal or just a LeChaim at midnight.
The name  Silvester or Sylvester in itself has an uneasy feel for many Jews worldwide. “Sylvester,” was the name of the “Saint” and Roman Pope who reigned during the Council of Nicaea (325 C.E.). The year before the Council of Nicaea convened, Sylvester convinced Constantine to prohibit Jews from living in Jerusalem. At the Council of Nicaea, Sylvester arranged for the passage of a host of viciously anti-Semitic legislation. All Catholic “Saints” are awarded a day on which Christians celebrate and pay tribute to that Saint’s memory. December 31 is Saint Sylvester Day (as Pope Sylvester died on 31 December 335).
