Jewish High Holidays

Academic Year 2016-17

Each holiday starts at sundown and also ends one hour past sundown.

These space holidays in which occupational is not allowed (Yom Tovim, i.e. “Days that Happiness”). I have not contained holidays when occupational is permitted.

The definition of “work” contains (but is not minimal to): steering or travel in a car or other vehicle, writing, using digital devices, using phones, and engaging in commerce.

I have not had the Jewish Sabbath (Shabbat) in this list. However, Shabbat is observed every week every week start at sundown and ending one hour after sundown. Holidays that end on Friday night go directly into Shabbat. Over there is no time in between the finish of the holiday and also the start of Shabbat.
