Learn about the Jewish Holidays starting with the Jewish New Year

How much do you know about the Jewish Holidays? Would you like to know more about this part of the Jewish faith and culture?

This month (September 2009) will actually begin the year 5770 on the Jewish calendar. The celebration of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) starts at sundown on September 18th and runs for ten days known as "The Ten Days of Awe" until the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) at sundown on the 27th. Yom Kippur is a twenty-four hour day each year when Jewish people ask God and each other for forgiveness of any wrongdoing. They must fast and give up all work-type activities for that period.

Close on its heels will come Sukkot (The Festival of Booths) in early October. Hanukkah (The Festival of Lights) is in December. That finishes off this year's most important Jewish Holidays on the American calendar.

If you would like to know more about these Jewish Holidays, or the holidays that come in the spring like Passover and Purim, you may like Sheryl's book, "What Every Christian Should Know about the Jewish People: Improving the Church's Relationship with God's Original Chosen Nation". You can order this book by clicking on its cover in the column to the right, or read Excerpts of the Book and order it here.
