JERSEY CITY SCHOOL BOARD Votes To Close For Muslim Holy Day September 12th…But They’re Pushing For More!

This is Obama’s plan…flood town with Muslims and then have them take over. School boards and city council elections all over America are electing Muslims who’ll begin the process of changing what they can. The Muslim community is also pushing for a school holiday to commemorate Eid al-Fitr, which does not fall on a school day during the 2016-17 school year. 

NUMEROUS VIDEOS ARE OUT THERE WHERE THEY’RE TELLING US EXACTLY WHAT THE PLAN IS – LOOK AT EUROPE! AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND PAY ATTENTION!


Jersey City public schools will be closed to students one day this September for the Muslim holy day Eid al-Adha, with the school board Thursday night voting unanimously to add the holiday to the school calendar.

The vote came during a four-hour meeting during which some speakers compared the fight to win the school holiday to the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.

“On behalf of the Muslim community, we made history,” said Jessica Abdelnabbi, a Muslim mother of three who pushed for the district to close for the holiday. “My children will not be excluded.”

Jersey City joins other districts around the state, including in Paterson, Trenton and Atlantic City, by officially recognizing Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice.

Board of Education President Vidya Gangadin said she is “very much pleased” with the board’s action.

“The board voting unanimously shows that the board does acknowledge the diverse population in Jersey City,” Gangadin said. “It’s a step in the right direction.”

At a school board meeting earlier this month, Schools Superintendent Marcia V. Lyles told parents that adding Eid al-Adha as a district holiday would likely mean keeping the district open on another federal holiday or losing a day from spring break.

But the district won’t have to find another day for the upcoming school year because it decided to move an in-house teacher professional development day to Monday, Sept. 12, which is when Eid al-Adha will fall this year.

The board will create a committee that includes religious leaders of various faiths to determine which holidays the district should add to its calendar starting in 2017-18.

The Muslim community is also pushing for a school holiday to commemorate Eid al-Fitr, which does not fall on a school day during the 2016-17 school year.
