  1. Purim Landing

    Purim, falling on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar, revolves around the biblical book of Esther and its farcical story of the threatened genocide and eventual salvation of the Jews. The festivities surrounding Purim are the most outlandish and whimsical of the Jewish calendar. Most Jews associate Purim with costumes and carnivals, graggers (noisemakers) and hamantashen (three-cornered, filled cookies that evoke the three-cornered hat of Haman) that appeal to children. But it would be wrong to dismiss Purim as a holiday only for children.

  3. Yom Hasho'ah Landing

    Yom Hasho’ah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) is the solemn commemoration day that recalls the horrific losses during the Holocaust. The murder of 6 million Jews is the most traumatic event in recent Jewish history. While we should never forget that Jews were not the only targets of Nazi genocide — the Roma people, homosexuals and the Nazi’s political enemies were also singled out — the annihilation suffered by the Jewish people was on an unprecedented scale.

  4. Yom Ha'Atzma'ut and Yom HaZikaron Landing

    Yom HaZikaron, Israeli Memorial Day, for those who have fallen in the defense of the nation, was originally observed only in the State of Israel, but the day has come to be marked in other places as well. In Israel, where there is near-universal military service, the day evokes particularly powerful emotions because almost everyone has had a relative or friend who has died in service to the country. It is observed the day before Israeli Independence Day.

  5. Rosh Hodesh Landing

    The Hebrew months correspond to lunar cycles. The beginning of the new moon is called Rosh Ḥodesh, literally, “head of the month.” Because a lunar cycle is 29½ days, some months are one day longer than others, and some have two days of Rosh Ḥodesh, while others have only one.

  6. Tisha B'Av Landing

    The fast day of Tisha B’Av, the ninth day of the month of Av, is an annual day of mourning marking the destruction of the Second Temple. Over time, Tisha B’Av became the central day of mourning on the Jewish calendar. Later generations layered their tragedies onto it.
