Fashion Week overlaps with the Jewish high holidays this year, making things difficult for those who plan to attend runway shows and Rosh Hashanah services. Luckily, Hasidic outreach organization Chabad has taken it upon themselves to make sure that everyone at the tents has a chance to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Rabbi Yehuda Lipskier told Refinery29 that Chabad of the West 60s is giving people free tickets to services "and asking only that they use what they would have spent to buy fashion to support New York's economy." (Has he been talking to Anna Wintour?) The group will even hold special prayers for designers like Zac Posen and Diane von Furstenberg. [Refinery29]
