History of Jewish High Holidays

It may seem that these holidays just move around our calendar and are celebrated at different dates each year. This is because these holidays follow the Jewish Calendar, which is a Soli-Lunar Calendar
Each month begins with the birth of a new moon and lasts 29-30 days

Most holidays are celebrated by most jews with a feast shared with family and friends. More observant Jews will attend the unique synagogue prayers and services during this time
