Jewish Holidays

Dates of major and minor Jewish holidays as observed in the Diaspora. Each holiday page includes a brief overview of special observances and customs, and any special Torah readings.

Except for minor fasts, holidays begin at sundown on the first date specified and end at nightfall on the last date specified. For example, if the dates for Rosh Hashana are listed as -, then the holiday begins at sundown on Sep 25 and ends at nightfall on Sep 27.

This page displays the Diaspora holiday schedule. The Israel schedule is used by Jews living in modern Israel.
