Religious Observances

Pronounced "Rezván," this annual Baha’i festival commemorates the 12 days when Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Baha’i Faith, publicly proclaimed His mission as God’s messenger for this age. Elections for local, national and international Baha’i institutions are generally held during the Festival of Riḍván. The twelfth day is celebrated as holy days when work is suspended and children are exempted from attending school. Some students or employees may request schedule adjustments in order to observe.
