Originating Calendar
Religious Observances

Ethiopian Jewish holiday occurring 50 days after Yom Kippur. Many members of the community fast, recite Psalms, and gather in Jerusalem for readings. The ritual is often followed by the breaking of the fast, dancing, and general revelry. Some students or employees may request scheduling accommodations in order to observe.
