Jewish Holidays

Learn the basics or get a refresher on the rituals and traditions of major Jewish holidays with our animated videos. There are quite a few Jewish holidays in a given year and due to the Jewish calendar's lunar cycle, they tend to move around quite a bit too. Regardless, all Jewish holidays begin the evening before the date specified on most calendars. This is because a Jewish day begins at sunset and ends at sunset. Some holidays permit work while others do not permit work. Some holidays are celebratory while others are more serious. Explore our videos to learn everything you need to know about the major Jewish holidays.
