                             About the Holidays

E       ach Jewish holiday has its own rituals and purpose, but they all begin at sundown with the
        lighting of candles and the giving of tzedakah, money to those in need. The Torah says: “You
        shall surely open your hand to your poor and needy kin” (Deuteronomy 15:11). Rabbis have
interpreted this to mean that although one shouldn’t wait for a holiday to help someone else, the holi-
days do provide an additional chance to ease suffering.
R O S H H A S H A N A H ([RO]SH ha-shah-NAH)
Rosh Hashanah marks the start of the Jewish year and usually falls in late September or early October.
It celebrates the beginning of the world and the creation of human beings. While most Jewish holi-
days celebrate historical events, Rosh Hashanah focuses on the individual. It is a joyful but solemn
festival, the time when a person faces the mistakes of the past year and asks forgiveness of anyone he
or she has harmed. Blowing the shofar during the prayers in the synagogue is supposed to awaken the
spirit to self-examination. Everyone hopes that the year will be sweet as apples and honey, which is
why they are part of the festival meal.
Yom Kippur means “Day of Cleansing.” On Kol Nidre, the night before the day of Yom Kippur, eve-
ryone fills the synagogue to participate in the most important holiday of the calendar, even those Jews
who may only attend services once a year. Jews may not eat, drink, work, or go to school on Yom
Kippur. They spend most of the day in the synagogue reading from the Torah and reciting special
prayers that offer people the courage to make a fresh start. Fasting isn’t intended as a punishment but
as a reminder of how dependent we are upon God for food, and as a way to focus on our spiritual
needs, rather than our material needs. The fast is also a way to remember the suffering of the poor and
N’ilah is the last service of Yom Kippur and ends at sundown when everyone goes home, eager to
break the fast with a family meal. Immediately after the dinner, the custom is to hammer in the first
nail of the sukkah as a way to shift from reflection to deed.
S U K K O T (Soo-COHT)
Sukkot, which falls five days after Yom Kippur, celebrates the fall harvest and the forty years that the
Jewish people wandered in the wilderness. Sukkot means “booths,” the temporary shelters the Jews
lived in during their journey to the promised land. The most joyful holiday of the Jewish calendar, it
is celebrated by building and decorating a little hut, called a sukkah, with fruits and vegetables. Some
people actually live in the sukkah for the week-long holiday. Others simply eat meals in it and invite
friends and family to share in the celebration. During Sukkot, one prays with a lulav and an etrog,
shaking them in all directions to acknowledge God’s sovereignty over the natural world.
S I M CH A T T O R A H (sim[K] HAHT to-RAH)
Simchat Torah means “Rejoicing of the Torah.” This holiday, which is the last day of Sukkot, cele-
brates the annual completion of Torah readings. Divided into weekly portions, the Torah is read and
discussed each Shabbat all year round. On Simchat Torah, both the last and first portions are read.
The congregation carries all the Torahs in a march around the synagogue, singing as they go.
