Some of the Jewish football players at a San Fernando Valley Catholic school will skip an annual rivalry game because of Yom Kippur.

West Hills Chaminade College Preparatory, which has a sizable Jewish student population, was scheduled to meet Sherman Oaks Notre Dame Prep on Oct. 7, the night when Yom Kippur begins, in their annual rivalry game.

The Chaminade coach did not realize that the game fell on Yom Kippur until it was too late to reschedule the game, the Los Angeles Times reported. The team will be short several players, according to the newspaper.

Other Southern California games were moved to Oct. 6, according to reports.
