The schools and colleges of the United States will be invited by Mrs. Edwin Zugsmith of Pittsburgh, Chairman of the Committee on Religion of the National Council of Jewish Women, to avoid scheduling examinations on the Jewish holidays during the approaching academic year. A very convenient calendar of Jewish holidays, with this plea for co-operation, is being issued to all college authorities and to local school superintendents and principals. Every Council Section in 233 cities will promote this campaign for holiday observance, through its local Chairman of the Committee on Religion. Considerable success has been achieved by the Council as a result of its efforts during these several years.
