*Starred holy days begin and end at sundown on the first and last days listed.
**Two stars indicate holidays that are calculated on a lunar calendar; dates are approximate. Muslim holidays begin and end at sundown on the first and last days listed.
***Three stars: the Bahá’í day ends and a new one begins at
sunset; consequently, the day on which a Holy Day is observed begns at
sunset of the day before the Gregorian calendar dates given above.
Please note also the weekly Jewish Shabbat restrictions and when
those restrictions fall during final exams. For observant members of the
Jewish community, no work or travel should take place from Friday at
sundown through Saturday at sundown. During the 2022-2023 academic year,
these dates are affected: Friday, Dec. 16 and Saturday, Dec. 17; and
Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13.
