milovany Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 If we have separation of church and state in our public schools, why do some school districts close specifically for Jewish holidays (and only Jewish holidays -- not Christian ones or Islamic ones or etc.)? I transcribe for high schools on the east coast, and one district on Long Island in New York that I work for had two days off last week for Rosh Hashanah and has tomorrow off for Yom Kippur . This surprises me as I've not experienced it before. Insight, please? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
