Mr. Joffe had the best suggestion of all: why not allocate one or two personal days to each student who may then choose, with parentel permission, which religious holy day(s) to observe.
This is the way of the private sector working world.
The Harvard SC seems to have 'holidays' confused with 'holy days'. Admittedly, some days are both but in this discussion the distinction needs to be front and center so as not to lose sight of the point of the 'debate'

Well, the word Holiday is Holy Day put into one. Holiday origonaly means a day set aside to worship god(s).
