Jewish Homecoming Petition

Athens, GA – The University of Georgia’s homecoming game is this Saturday, October 4th. This Saturday is also the holiest day of the year for the Jewish community. Yom Kippur is celebrated by Jewish across the globe. They spend the entire day praying and fasting for twenty-five hours. The Jews on campus are upset they will have to miss out on the football game but also believe it should have never been scheduled on that day in the first place. Jewish student, Tyler Andrews, wrote a letter to President Jerry Moorehead and is asking for all other Jewish students to sign as well. The letter states that the Jewish community feels disrespected for UGA not being considerate of their scheduling. They are not trying to get the game cancelled, but are simply asking for acknowledgement of what they feel was a mistake that was made. As of now, they have over 1200 signatures for the letter.
