Color meanings and gunshot wounds

I have two questions, totally unrelated to each other, so I'll put them behind seperate cuts.

First Question: I know that different colors have different connotations depending on where you are in the world, for instance, in the Western part of the world (England, America, etc.), white stands for innocence and calmness, but in some Eastern cultures, it is associated with death and mourning. What I'm looking for specifically is what colors mean in Middle Eastern cultures, specifically Jewish. Just the basic colors: white, black, grey, red, yellow, orange, blue, green, brown, and violet.

Edit: Okay, Judaism is out, what about other Middle Eastern cultures?

Second Question: Okay, in one story I have a character who was shot in the shoulder. What I need to know is where exactly in the shoulder the bullet can penetrate without killing the character. I also need to know how long the character would need to go through therapy, how long they would need to be off work, and, since the character works for the FBI, how long it would be before the character could go back on active duty, specifically field work, not just desk jockeying.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
