While such an interpretation of a student’s absence for religious observance is completely erroneous and unfounded, ADL strongly encourages older students and parents of younger children to advise teachers or professors in advance of the High Holidays – preferably in person - why they will be absent, and to ask for any important information or materials that will be provided during the days or classes missed.

According to Orthodox and Conservative traditions, no work should be performed on those days. This Treat is reposted in honor of Rosh Hashana. Some of the sages note that the Hebrew word for "year" - shanah (שָׁנָה) - shares the same root as both the word "repeat" (שָׁנָה) and the word "change" (שִׁנָּה).

During the Service, there will be a snack and child study especially for our Hot Shots. Whether people agree on metaphysical claims or not is unimportant.

After the morning Amidah, each day the Torah is read from Numbers (7:1-89), describing the sacrifices which were brought by the princes at the dedication of the Temple.

And in a separate but related question, most Jews say a person can be Jewish even if that person works on the Sabbath or does not believe in God. Contrary to popular belief, Jewish people do not simply say that "God chose the Jews ." This practice of celebrating an extra day was maintained as a custom even after we adopted a precise mathematical calendar, because it was the custom of our ancestors. It always includes the phrase, y’tziat mitzrayim, connecting Passover with each Sabbath and festival of the year.

Jewish people celebrate a Shabbat, a day of rest, on the seventh day of the week. The Jewish High Holy Days are observed during the 10 day period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The Torah scriptures are a set of rules or laws which were given to Moses on Mount Sinai, they helped Moses to lead the Jewish people from captivity in Egypt to Israel, a journey known as the Exodus. Services are joyous, and humorous deviations from the standard service are allowed, and even expected. The most important teaching of this religion is that there is one god.
