Religious Holidays Observance Reminder

As a reminder, in accordance with New York State law, no student may be penalized for absences due to religious beliefs.

Please note the Jewish High Holidays are in September this year.

• Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year - lasts from sunset Friday, September 18 through sunset Sunday, September 20.

• Yom Kippur begins sunset on Sunday, September 27, and lasts until sunset Monday, September 28. The Jewish Day of Atonement. This holiest day of the Jewish year is observed with strict fasting and ceremonial repentance.

In an effort to support students' religious and spiritual needs, accommodations must be made for students in both daytime/evening classes, keeping in mind course assignment deadlines and that students may need to travel home for these holidays.

For questions on how to support students' religious and spiritual needs, please contact the Office of Equity Diversity and Inclusion.
