Jewish High Holy Days

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) will occur this year from the evening of September 15th to the evening of September 17th, and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) will occur from the evening of September 24th to the evening of September 25th. Known as the High Holy Days, these holidays include festive celebrations for Rosh Hashanah and fasting for Yom Kippur.

As with Jewish holidays generally, observance begins shortly before sunset and ends at nightfall. Employees and coworkers may request time off to observe these holidays and spend quality time with family and friends. Businesses and organizations may close in observance of these holidays.
