Tonight is Rosh Hashanah. The airports and highways are jammed with Jewish travelers, working their way home to share laughs and round challah with their families. But today is not solely the celebration of the Jewish New Year—it’s also Elie Tahari Day. Yes, the Jerusalem-born fashion designer has his own day, declared by Mayor Michael Bloomberg himself.

Turning 40 has its benefits. In honor of Elie Tahari’s 40th anniversary, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the City of New York have designated Sept. 4 “Elie Tahari Day.” City official Rob Goldrich will be joined by Joan Rivers in a presentation at Tahari’s pop-up shop at 510 Fifth Avenue at 10 a.m., where a proclamation will be read.

Shanah tova, Tahari.
