This calendar of Jewish holidays has been prepared by the JCRC of Greater Washington as an aid for planning and scheduling events (tests, examinations, assemblies, conferences, athletic events, tournaments, open houses, registrations, etc.) in an attempt to minimize conflicts that involve the absence of Jewish students and personnel. For more in-depth Jewish calendars, visit Hebcal.
Recently, the JCRC led an interfaith advocacy coalition of Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains to secure school days off on major religious holidays in counties throughout Greater Washington. We mobilized parents and activists to advocate for calendars that would make all students feel safe and valued in their learning environments and offer all children an equitable opportunity to succeed.
2023-2024 Calendars by School District:
*These districts do not give off for minority religious holidays.
We are pleased to share the interfaith calendar created by our colleagues at the Interfaith Council of Greater Washington. We hope this is helpful in being an ally to other religious minorities.
If you need support advocating for yourself or your student, please reach out to Education Director Sara Winkelman.
