Mtg on schools' plan to drop Jewish holidays

Posted at 5:19 PM, Dec 17, 2015

Howard County residents can speak out tonight on plans to possibly drop two Jewish holidays from next year’s school calendar.

The plan is to only close schools on state-mandated holidays, meaning Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur wouldn't be observed.
