Jewish and Christian Holidays

Often I was asked by tourists to put together something which will explain the Jewish Holidays and special days in the Jewish Calendar and in the Christian calendar

I am happy to start this series called Jewish Holidays, where I will publish every Jewish Holiday or every day with significant in the Jewish Calendar, explain the holiday and its traditions and bring some flavors and tastes of foods, customs, traditions and show how Jews relate to that day in their culture

I will also publish about Christian days in the Christian calendar.

It is very symbolic that the first holiday we start this series is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, beginning of the year and beginning of this series

Join me to watch this series of “Jewish Holidays” and special Christian days
