Eid al-Adha: A Day of Significance

Dear Friends,

Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) celebrates the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son when ordered to do so by God. In 2020, this Muslim holiday will be observed in the U.S. between sundown on July 31st and sundown on August 3rd. The date may be different in other countries, as the sighting of the new moon will determine the start of the holiday.

Eid al-Adha is of great significance within Islam and employees may request time off. Please review and share Tanenbaum’s fact sheet for more information on the holiday’s workplace implications, appropriate greetings, and more!

In peace,

Rev. Mark Fowler
