Passover 2009 begins April 9th and goes through the 15th.

The Sox home opener is April 6th against the Rays. They will play the Rays at home again on the 8th and 9th; then the 10th, 11th and 12th on the road against the Angels; then the 13th, 14th and 15th on the road at Oakland.

Doesn't sound much like taking time off for Passover to me.

Also, the Sox don't have three Jewish starters, only one: Kevin Youkilis. They had two bench players, Gabe Kapler and Adam Stern, who are Jewish. The only time all three started together was for one game the first week of August 2005. Neither is currently with the Sox: Kapler temporarily retired after the '06 season but is now with Tampa Bay; Stern was traded to the Orioles in October '06 and is currently with Milwaukee in the minors.
