Rosh HaShanah Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: ראש השנה transliterated rosh hash-shānāh, "head of the year") is the Jewish New Year. In fact, Judaism has four "new years" which mark various legal "years", much like in the United States January 1 marks the "new year" but the "fiscal new year" starts on a different date. Rosh Hashanah is the new year for people, animals and legal contracts. The Mishnah also sets this day aside as the new year for calculating calendar years and sabbatical (shemitta) and jubilee (yovel) years. Read more....
Yom Kippur  --  (יום כפור yome kippūr, day of atonement) is the Jewish holiday of the Day of Atonement. The Bible calls the day Yom Hakippurim (Hebrew, "Day of the Atonements"). It is one of the Yamim Noraim (Hebrew, "Days of Awe"). The Yamim Noraim consist of Rosh Hashanah, which is the first two days of the Ten Days of Repentance, and Yom Kippur, which is the last of the ten days. Recipes for Yom Kippur - Break the Fast
Sukkot ~ Feast of Booths -- (סוכות or סֻכּוֹת sukkōt, booths) or Succoth is an 8-day Biblical pilgrimage festival, also known as the Feast of Booths, the Feast of Tabernacles, or Tabernacles. In Judaism it is one of the most important Jewish holidays. The term also refers to a location referred to in the Hebrew Bible.
Hanukkah -- (חנכה Hănukkāh, or חנוכה Hănūkkāh) is a Jewish holiday, also known as the Festival of lights. "Hanukkah" is a Hebrew word meaning "dedication". It also has other spellings in English, such as Chanukah, Hannukah, Hanukah, Chanuka, Chanukkah, Hanuka, Channukah, Hanukka, Hanaka, Haneka, Hanika, and Khanukkah. The first evening of Hanukkah starts after the sunset of the 24th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. Since in Jewish tradition the calendar date starts at sunset, Hanukkah begins on the 25th.
Passover -- also known as Pesach or Pesah (פסח pesah), is a Jewish holiday, beginning on the evening of the 14th day of Nisan, that commemorates the Exodus and freedom of the Israelites from Ancient Egypt.
Purim -- Purim (פּוּרִים "Lots", Standard Hebrew Purim, Tiberian Hebrew Prm: plural of פּוּר pr "Lot", from Akkadian pūru) is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Persian Jews from the plot of the evil Haman to exterminate them, as recorded in the biblical Book of Esther. According to that book, the feast was instituted as a national one by the book's protagonists, Mordechai and Esther. Purim is celebrated annually on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. (In a small number of cities that were walled in ancient times, it is instead celebrated on the 15th.) As with all Jewish holidays, Purim begins at sundown on the previous day.
Shavuot -- (Hebrew שבועות), ("[seven] weeks") (pronounced: shah-voo-OH-t) is one of the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It is a major Jewish holiday, and is also known as the Feast of Weeks. Greek-speaking Jews gave it the name Pentecost (πεντηκόστη) since it occurs fifty days after Passover. If you don't count Passover, the holiday is 49 days after Passover, which is a jubilee of days. This ends the Counting of the Omer.
