Yom Kippur

ECU Statement regarding Yom Kippur and Homecoming

ECU welcomes all people to be part of our living, working, and learning community. We grow in strength as we diversify our students, staff, and faculty.

We recognize that diversity and respect for human difference is a key source of intellectual vitality and innovative spirit. We recognize that for members of the ECU family our Homecoming activities on October 3 and 4 conflict with the holy day observances of Yom Kippur. We strive to avoid conflicts between religious holidays and official university activities.

Unfortunately, we are not always successful. Know that we will continue our efforts to avoid these conflicts in the future.  If you are visiting us during this holiday, please feel free to contact Abbie Brown, Congregation President for Congregation Bayt Shalom (president@baytshalom.org).
