Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Jewish Day of Atonement) will take place this year September 6 – September 8 and September 15 – 16, respectively. Together, these are known as the High Holy Days and are often regarded as the most important of all Jewish holidays. Observations begin and end at sundown of the dates listed above.
Employees observing these holidays may request time off to attend services and celebrate with family and friends. There may be specific ways students may observe traditions, or staff and patients alike in healthcare settings. Learn more about both holidays and a few other seasonal holidays in Tanenbaum’s Jewish Fall Holidays fact sheet. Shana tova and a sweet new year to all!
If there are any ways Tanenbaum can help you and your workplace prepare for the upcoming holidays, please connect with us – we’d love to hear from you! Additional resources can be found on our Workplace Resources page.
