Thoughts on asking a client to change a meeting in September due to Jewish holidays? It’s a lot of participants and they want me to prep and facilitate for their team.

Agreed. They're clients, not slave masters. If you're critical to the meeting you'll need to let them know you can't make it at the current time and they can reschedule for any of the suggested alternative times you offer them. If they ask why, there's no reason not to let them know you observe the Jewish holidays.

Would they schedule a meeting Christmas?

Why do you need an explanation? Say you have a conflict

Thanks all! Appreciate the support

I agree with everyone else. Move the meeting
