FIVE-YEAR CALENDAR OF MAJOR JEWISH HOLY DAYS 
           
This calendar has been prepared by the Jewish Community Relations Council to assist you in scheduling events such as major assignments, examinations, assemblies, sporting events, field trips and graduations, as well as school-related programs for parents.  Courts, legislative bodies and community organizations may also find this calendar helpful in avoiding scheduling conflicts with major Jewish holy days.  
The holidays listed in bold denote the Jewish High Holy Days and the beginning of Passover (the night before the first date listed for Passover is when the first Seder is held), the holidays when Jewish individuals are most likely to be absent from both work and school.  Also listed are other Jewish holy days in observance of which labor is traditionally prohibited.  
Please note that all of our holy days, including the Sabbath, begin in the evenings at sundown (the night before the date(s) on standard calendars and the calendar below) and run through nightfall the next day.  The Jewish Sabbath begins at sunset on Friday of each week and lasts until nightfall on Saturday.  For many Jews, travel from the home to a secular event can only start after nightfall at the end of the holy day.  

So as not to penalize students or workers for their religious observance, we ask for your assistance to avoid scheduling events, tests, preparation for exams, assignments, assemblies, sports events, etc. on major Jewish holy days and the Jewish Sabbath.
