Festivals

Holidays and festivals form the circle of the Jewish year. While celebrating and observing with our community fills an important role, there is also an essential component which we can fulfill at home, especially for our children as we set the example of Jewish worship. Chocolate Seder at Emanuel
 
The festivals in bold below are those that are learned from the Torah and whose observance is based on Shabbat. Each is a day of rest, celebrated with sanctity and joy (with the exception of the holy day of Yom Kippur, our time of deepest introspection).
 
Please note that Festival day and Sabbath observance begins at sunset on the previous evening.
