SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Israel’s main student union is pushing the government to recognize holidays celebrated by different religions in the education system’s calendar. The group asked on Monday that Muslim and Christian holidays like Christmas and Ramadan be added to the official vacation schedule at universities and other institutions for higher learning across the country. The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) asked the Council for Higher Education to recognize the religious celebrations so that students would be able to celebrate them without interfering with their education. The group also pushed for leniency with students celebrating Ramadan, as the monthlong fast falls during this year’s exam period, according to Haaretz.
