Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) frame ten days of turning to our best selves.
High Holy Days at Mount Zion
This joyful, seven-day holiday brings us outside in a sukkah (booth) to reflect on gratitude and the fragility of life.
Sukkot at Mount Zion
At the end of Sukkot comes the festive Simchat Torah (and Shmini Atzeret) when we roll the Torah back to Genesis to begin our reading anew.
Simchat Torah at Mount Zion
The minor but enjoyable holiday is our “Festival of Lights”, a time of rededication.
Chanukah at Mount Zion
The new year of the trees … in winter!
Tu BiSh’vat at Mount Zion
Like Mardi Gras, as we emerge out of winter, this is our “turn everything on its head” celebration.

Our central story of redemption is told in a home-based ritual of the seder on the first night and the holiday continues for seven full days.
