This is an educational resource about the many religious holy days celebrated at Clarkson. Not only does this section offer information about dates and practices, we also hope the recommended academic and food accommodations will be valuable to those planning classroom activities and other academic and co-curricular events. Contact us at email@example.com with questions about reasonable accommodations for religious holy days.
Dates, Practices and Accommodations: Points to remember
- Dates are assembled from several calendars and begin with the academic year (August through July). Lunar calendars vary based on region and practice.
- “Kosher restrictions apply” refers to the dietary guidelines of Jewish law which apply daily throughout the year. Restrictions include pork, shellfish (fish is allowed) and mixing meat with dairy.
- “Halal dietary restrictions apply” refers to the foods prohibited according to Islamic dietary law throughout the year. Restrictions include alcohol and pork.
- The Chief Inclusion Office in consultation with the Council of Student Diveristy and Inclusion suggests trying to serve food in Kosher-style. This covers a wide variety of dietary needs. However, it is always important to think of vegetarian, vegan, and allergen-restricted participants. Again, we are here to help. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those wishing to pursue their spiritual or religious practices at Clarkson will find a wide array of on and off-campus options.
