Yom Kippur, Jewish Holiday, Oct. 7-8, 2011
The Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur begins at sundown on Friday, October 7th and concludes at sundown on Saturday, October 8th. Yom Kippur - also known as the Day of Atonement - is one of the most important Jewish holy days of the Jewish year. Observance includes fasting, prayer, and lighting the Yahrziet candle (a memorial used on certain holidays and on the anniversary of the death of a loved one).
Please remember to accommodate our campus community. Avoid scheduling important academic deadlines, events and activities on these dates as they are considered a work holiday. Many individuals may be unable to participate in activities after a day of fasting; for those who choose to do so, remember to provide food accommodations as requested. For evening events, provide food accommodations after dark.
