Bethesda Now: New MCPS Calendar Might Leave Off Names Of Jewish Holidays

Next year’s MCPS calendar may not include the major Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, even though county schools will be closed on both days as has been the case each year since the 1970s.
MCPS Superintendent Joshua Starr is recommending a different presentation for the school system’s 2015-2016 school calendar that would omit references to the holidays...


  1. What nonsense. This is just part of MCPS trying to gloss over anything and everything. Why is anyone spending staff time and thought on this when there are actual problems to solve at MCPS?

  2. This sends a chilling message to the Jews in this county.

  3. What message does it send to the Muslims?
