Baltimore Public Schools to Remain Shut During Jewish High Holy Days
 
 
 
 
November 9, 2017
 
 
 
 
Schools will remain closed on the High Holy Days in Baltimore County, the home to several large Jewish communities, for the 2018-19 school year following an extended debate.
 
The Baltimore County school board on Tuesday night voted 9-3 to approve the academic calendar for the next term with the district closing on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as it has for the past two decades.
 
The debate centered on keeping the schools open for the High Holidays or having an extended break in the spring around Easter.
 
The calendar had to be reworked following an order by Gov. Larry Hogan that Maryland public schools must begin after Labor Day and end by June 15. The requirement is aimed at extending the summer and boosting state tourism, the Baltimore Sun reported.
 
The Baltimore Jewish Council and the Baltimore County PTA board of directors opposed opening schools on the Jewish holidays, according to the newspaper.
 
A school board member estimated that it would cost the school system up to $500,000 to pay for the substitute teachers needed to fill in for Jewish teachers who take off on the Jewish holidays.
 
"It's not a religious issue. It's a question of economics," school board member David Uhlfelder said at Tuesday's meeting.
 
Baltimore County has significant Jewish communities in Owings Mill, Pikesville, Randallstown and Reisterstown. The City of Baltimore is not in the county and keeps its schools open for the High Holidays.
 
The calendar also was amended at the meeting to switch one professional development day to June 5, which is the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr. Muslim families in the district have been lobbying to have school closed on their holidays as well.
 
Other school districts in Maryland have approved calendars for next year that either keep the schools open on one or both of the Jewish holidays, or remain closed on the holidays.

Many people in the United States celebrate Christmas Day on December 25.

 

The day celebrates Jesus Christ's birth.

It's legal.

 

December 25 was declared a federal holiday in the United States in 1870.

Congress passed another "law" in 1991 that declares  leaven of Pharisees, that makes Word of God of none effect, to be bedrock of civilization, and that all nations must submit to anti-Christ Talmudic control, and it also makes Jesus Christ illegal with decapitation being punishment for Christians.

Most US Christians are so stupid and blinded by their apostasy from "nature's God" that they fully support the killing of Christians in many countries, to the extent that they are willing to consume America is supporting that sinogog of satan Christ warned us about.

Grog's Christmas picture, below, is from a Christmas ecard, American Greetings used to have available, called Three Wise Camels sung to the tune of My Hump

It was really good. But they turned it off for some reason.
