Passover (Pesach, meaning sacrifice) begins a week-long holiday beginning on the evening of the 14th day of Nisan (the first month in the Hebrew calendar, falling in the March - April time period), that commemorates the Exodus from Egypt.

E. and the subsequent liberation and "rededication" of the holy Temple in Jerusalem. New Year of Trees – 15 Shevat / February 4, 2015 spring-time renewal and growth. Israel’s short history has been one of remarkable economic and artistic achievement, and of painful struggle for recognition, identity and survival. *As are also employed by most historians, the terms BCE [Before Common Era] and CE [Common Era] are generally used by Jews as they do NOT believe that a Messiah has yet been revealed and they, therefore, do not use the Christian terms BC [Before Christ] or AD [Year of Our Lord]. “Judaism” is the term for the religion of the Jewish people.

The Fast of Gedaliah is observed to commemorate the murder of Gedaliah the son of Achikam, which is described in the last chapter of the Second Book of Kings. It is a legal document, not actually a prayer. But whether Christmas, Easter or any holiday in between, when the Amish community celebrates, it is a grand, fun-filled, family event! Some prefer to commemorate Churban Europa on Tisha B'Av along with the other catastrophes which have befallen the Jewish people.

To mark this saying, Thais hold an elephant festival on the third Saturday in November. In the Reform movement, both girls and boys have their bat/bar mitzvah at age thirteen. Indeed, in many ways, this imagery reflects the process and urgency of the Yom Kippur Neilah service. The Jewish calendar is lunar, with each month beginning on the new moon.� The new months used to be determined by observation.� When the new moon was observed, the Sanhedrin declared the beginning of a new month and sent out messengers to tell people when the month began.� People in distant communities could not always be notified of the new moon (and, therefore, of the first day of the month), so they did not know the correct day to celebrate.� They knew that the old month would be either 29 or 30 days, so if they did not get notice of the new moon, they celebrated holidays on both possible days.� For more information about the lunar months, see Jewish Calendar.

This is a place where “community” is truly our middle name. Contrary to popular belief, Yom Kippur is not a sad day. Over the next four centuries this law underwent discussion and debate in both of the world's major Jewish communities (in Israel and Babylonia ), and the commentaries on the Mishnah from each of these communities eventually came to be edited together into compilations known as the two Talmuds. Although descriptions of tashlich often include the casting of bread crumbs, feeding wild animals is prohibited on Shabbat and the holidays.
