This is a very positive perspective, and one which reflects a history which provides a greater seed for which the survival of the Human Race ” may ” depend upon.
There are two very important legal documents who are in total agreement; and of which can be verified in the most conservative and liberal courts upon our land of The United States of America.
The Thirteen Principles of Jewish Faith.
The Constitution of the United States.
The focus of which will be covered in another blog. Nevertheless, and especially what happened at SUNY @ Stony Brook, who reversed the closing on Yom Kippur, to close this campus, once again, and other campuses on Yom Kippur and Rosh HaShannah is the initial step which further guarantees central personal students rights to full discoveries as pedagogical academic mission.
The centrality of Yom Kippur’s personal behavioral impact from the ceremony itself is its remains of its observance. The emergence of a warm, loving, and giving human being. Thus at the Jewish Student Union at SUNY @ Buffalo 1972 began a campaign to close SUNY on Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah and achieved success: though a few unreported incidents have politically occurred at Albany concerning this issue alone. This is only a brief introduction and by the time as additional reports are reported in this blog several surprises will emerge..
However tragedy as per this Official Report.
Beginning in the 2014-15 academic year, classes will be held at the University at Buffalo on the Jewish holy days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Why has this change taken place?
UB is an increasingly multicultural public institution that enrolls students of dozens of cultures and religious faiths. Even the holiest of their holy days are not class free, however. The exceptions are the Christian holy days of Christmas, which is a national holiday on which the entire university is closed, and Easter, which falls on a Sunday when classes are not in session.
The Faculty Senate Executive Committee, which recommends the academic calendar to UB’s president, asked for this revision to establish at UB a policy more appropriate for a state institution. These calendar modifications are intended to insure greater continuity in the academic schedule and minimize course disruption for students.
These changes are consistent with practices at many of UB’s fellow public institutions, including many SUNY campuses.
They destroyed a multi – decades tradition with the consent of either the Jewish Students / Scholars base, nor official adjacent Jewish community leadership.
A powerful voice was destroyed for the advocacy of American Jewish Rights.
This event and story to be added in later editing of this blog.
None to be conscious, this is not to deter….
Closing Cornell University, Ithaca College and Ithaca High School on Yom Kippur is the most single instrument of recognition values to which all superstitions about World Jewry are erased from the conscious of both human behavior and future events. The values implied of what remains by observance are contained in the ceremonies involved…..
A warm. loving, and giving human being. The single most graphic direct ” verified ” answer to … ” Who are the Jewish Peoples? ”
Its in the institutions of educations’ pedagogies established missions to secure students’ rights of personal full discoveries, and from / for which the bests is demanded of its educators and students alike in a secular covenant to evaluate the beliefs of truths; and the established institutions upon which the discovery resultant are so based, and organized. It is by which such covenants are further recognized and all the attentions involved and are impacted upon who are in reality are the student community of whom will themselves most benefit from. Those in the student community who will benefit are those who are not Jewish by the single discovery ” Who are the Jewish Peoples [ note the plural ]”. Both the demands of time and calendar observance gives direct importance of what are central truths which represents World Jewry; and all the attentions of all subsequent resulting human behaviors; and most important the resulting intellectual discoveries and interests in ones future of life after education where personal their rights are magnified; and by which life’s aspirations assumes more assurance for the fulfillment of happiness.
It has been directly observed by both this author, leading educators, and most of all the founders of the United States the universalities of being a warm, loving, and giving human being; and from which represents educations answer in its pedagogy becoming immediately a reality by closing as a formal declaration against the those European social, cultural, religious, economic, and political traditions which emerged into the development of the genocide of European Jewry, known as the Holocaust 1933 – 1945. Closing is not based upon this tragic event alone, but is most solely base in the impact of discovery by those who are not Jewish of what is World Jewry’s conscious choice is in ” fact ” in human behavior and from which emerges out of central united beliefs between both Jewish and Non-Jewish students / scholars within the academic pedagogies; and the more positive aspect in promoting their further interests in their own personal discovery of ones self.
It is in the historic struggle of the efforts of those who have founded The United States and all those who have maintain the covenants they established that the centrality of being a united peoples are based by humility. That power is not based upon divine rights, but is ones own personal beliefs on – going development and its emotional and logical impact in committing ones consent; and all the subsequent impact of legal behavior and actions thereof by their consent and actions, ie. voting.
The single standard bearer of Yom Kippur in its observing covenants, a central universality cognition that humankind survival is based upon each person’s actions taken by being a warm, loving, and giving human being The efforts of the founders of both the Constitution of the United States and the nation it covenanted of its namesake stands as the single revolution against the European tradition; their dedication to the principle of human rights are not based upon the divine rights of kings, nor of the state, or nation but upon the single purpose of the individuals rights to full personal discoveries; and from which personal rights to consent by elections, and juries are all implied in doctrinaire of the United States Constitution; this the seed of the nations humility and the centralities of rights in our united beliefs.
It is by such course of recognition of action. closings, by which the core of Jewish beliefs whether be spiritual observances, or by those who are secularists/ atheist in their observance are fully recognized by which directly gives a positive answer to wit the peoples of the United States rejects the social, religious, cultural, economic. and political components of the European tradition which gave support to the Genocide of European Jewry. The resulting emotional and behavioral impact actually destroys the duality competing personalities sufferance which a significant portion of American Jewry have exhibited. Am I Jewish first, and then American second or it is visa versa? The image by which Yom Kippur sets a central conscious personal dedication of World Jewry likewise are, then, likewise, covenanted, and thereby are able to further their common resolve of personal discoveries of standing within its positive Jewish personal answers against the Anti – Jewish Superstitions which gave rise to the Holocaust. That in personal fulfillment of observance of Yom Kippur, in being a warm, loving, and giving human being the natural human character of both Jewish and those who are not Jewish stands united in the further personal human resolved discovery that Righteousness is innate in the human character. IE. Thus the German International Community can be so embraced by such observances themselves in a historic transformation, and where by the answer itself modifies the German civilization now under reconstruction in an emerging United Germany.
Thus in its most simple terms the Jewish experience is fully exposed for which being a warm, loving, and giving human being creates more fulfilling relationship within the student core of students and from which their attentions are more fully focused upon how they decide are their own personal rights in forming human relations.
Here in Ithaca, New York Cornell University, Ithaca College, and Ithaca High School should close on Yom Kippur, and at Cornell University Rosh Hashanah as well.
