Jersey City’s school board decided against adding an Islamic holiday to its official school closure list. The board met on Thursday to discuss the vote on closing school on Sept. 24 for Eid al-Adha.

NJ.com  NBC New York reported that some Jewish members of the community who attended the meeting claimed discrimination, since they do not have off for the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

On Friday, Jersey City Schools Superintendent Marcia Lyles said board members were concerned that it would be too disruptive to declare a new school holiday. She said that “despite the outcome, I believe the discussion re-affirmed our commitment to recognizing and honoring the rich cultural and religious diversity of the Jersey City community.

“As I stated following the public voices, no matter how the Board ultimately voted, we will continue to engage the entire Jersey City community in this important conversation,” she said.

Lyles’s Chief of Staff Maryann Dickar, who also attended the meeting, said it is inaccurate to characterize the debate on the holiday as “a conflict between Jews and Muslims.” According to Dickar, the Jewish community has not been asking for Jewish holidays as the Mulsim community has.

The board will be again reflecting on all the religious holidays for the 2016-2017 school year, she said.
