Jewish Holiday NoticePosted Sep. 2, 2013
Dear Kent State Faculty and Staff:
Welcome back to campus! The Jewish holidays fall early this year in the second week of class.
- Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 4, and ends the evening of Friday, Sept. 6.
- Yom Kippur begins Friday, Sept. 13, and ends Saturday night, Sept. 14.
As many students, faculty and staff may request time off to observe the Jewish holidays, we felt it important to inform you of the dates so that you can take them into account in your planning. Traditional observances of these holidays include refraining from work/school, spending time with family and in synagogue.
While not all scheduling conflicts can be avoided, I hope you are able to takes these dates into consideration to allow members of our diverse Kent State community the ability to celebrate these holidays without being penalized.
Please be aware that different Jewish students may observe the holidays differently; some observe one day of a holiday, while others observe two. Please keep this in mind should you have two students requesting excused absences for different lengths of time.
A 10-year Jewish holiday calendar can also be found on our website at www.kenthillel.org. Please also note that Jewish holidays begin at sundown the previous day.
We encourage you to call Hillel at Kent State should you have any questions.
Best wishes for a safe and prosperous new year,
Hillel at Kent State University
