PRINT ACCOMMODATION LETTER

Please fill out this form in order to print your own customized Letter of Accommodation to facilitate discussions with your employer about taking off days from work for the Holy Days.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am requesting Religious Accommodation in assignment and scheduling.

For consideration, I am a believer of, and adherent to, the Torah. I am committed to living in a manner that demonstrates my obedience to the commands as given to Moses. In doing this I observe and participate in the Sabbaths, feasts and festivals as recorded in the Torah, as do many followers of Messianic, Orthodox, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Reform movements of Jewish observance, who personally choose to do as an outward expression of their commitment to their faith, and in following with long held traditions and practices, as observed under Jewish religious law.

Additionally, I actively participate in the services, Bible studies and other congregational events of the community – locally, regionally and virtually, and attends denominational functions held annually at various venues as a visible and active part of the communal body of Messianic Torah Observant Israel (MTOI), locally and at large.

In observance of Scripture, I exercise my protected right to not perform secular activities during Holy days and the 24-hour period from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, the Sabbath, in harmony with the Old and New Testament teachings of the Bible. For clarification and scheduling considerations, all days are observed from sunset the day prior, to sunset of the date(s) listed, as indicated below.

Religious Holy Day(s) and the respective dates for 2020:

  • Shabbat (Weekly) – Sunset Friday to sunset Saturday
  • Passover (Pesach) – Sunset April 8 to sunset April 9, 2020
  • Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) – Sunset April 9 to sunset April 15, 2020
  • Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) – Sunset May 28 to sunset May 29, 2020
  • Day of Trumpets (Yom HaTeruah) – Sunset September 18 to sunset September 19, 2020

  • Feast of Booths (Chag HaSukkot) – Sunset October 2 to sunset October 9, 2020
  • Feast of the Eighth Day (Shemini Atzeret) – Sunset October 9 to sunset October 10, 2020

 

Please allow me the use of earned vacation, compensatory time or mark these dates as excused absences, as they are officially recognized religious Holy days, which I have a right to observe in accordance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, applicable state law(s) and company EEO policies without punishment or adverse consequences.

If you have any questions about the observances or the dates, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
