Is Today a Jewish Holiday?

From dancing with Torahs on Simchat Torah to scouting out Hamantaschen at Purim, we have an abundance of holidays to celebrate! But ever found yourself wondering, "Is today a Jewish holiday?" Fear not, fellow Jewish-calendar navigators, this humorous yet inspiring guide takes you through the ebbs and flows of our rich tapestry of celebrations, fast days, and everything in between. Buckle up for a joyous journey through history, spirituality, community, and yes, food—lots of delicious food. Let's embrace the gift that is the Jewish calendar, where every day is an invitation to celebrate our shared journey, peppered with a hint of humor, a dollop of inspiration, and a hearty helping of togetherness.
