No apologies were needed. It was more a fyi than anything else.

I'm Reform. One day.
The two day holiday was meant just to be sure the holiday was over time-wise. Since we have clocks, we clearly know when a day is over.

Incorrect. For Rosh Hashana, both days are a holiday. Reform Jews are mistaken to only make this a one day holiday. And welcome to the forum (FYI: we Jews don't post in this forum on Shabbos, regardless of our level of observance).

There is a law in this forum where it is prohibited to post on Sabbath? Perhaps a moderator could answer this.

You may be surprised that most Jewish people do not celebrate Sabbath. In most of Israel, stores are open on Sabbath, including in Tel Aviv. Orthodox Jews are the only ones who takes Sabbath very strict.

Bad news...

You are permitted to post in this forum on Shabbos. It's only the Jews who refrain from posting here on Shabbos out of respect of the Torah and its mitzvos. Please respect what the Jews are asking here.

There is no law related to posting on C-D itself. We who post in this sub-forum may not agree on numerous items, but in respect for each other we made an agreement on this one item not to post here in the Judaism Forum during Shabbat (EST) and the high holy days. You may search thru the older threads to find the thread(s) on this subject which includes Mod narrative on the subject.

Sorry to tell you, but you are wrong. The stores that do open on Shabbat open up within an hour or so of the end of Shabbat. Most businesses in Israel start closing up many hours before Shabbat starts. During Shabbat in Israel, even if they don't follow the Talmudic view, treat it as a day of rest. I have never seen a business open from Friday evening to Saturday night in Israel. Now if you ask me, have I seen a car being driven (rare) on Shabbat then I would say yes to that.
