Judaism is filled with rich traditions and customs that are observed during each holiday of the Jewish calendar. In addition, during holidays and other life-cycle events in Judaism, many Jewish people around the world look to buy tallis for honoring and commemorating the traditions. So, let's take a look at the 5 Jewish holidays that play a crucial part in every Jewish life.
The Jewish Sabbath—Shabbat in Hebrew, Shabbos in Yiddish—is the day of rest and weekly observance of God’s completion of Creation and the desire to see peace and harmony in the world. This Jewish festival is observed every week, beginning at sunset on Friday and concluding one hour after sunset on Saturday evening. Shabbat is as essential as any other holy day for religiously observant Jews. As per the Jews, God rested on the Seventh Day of Creation. This is the reason why Jews are commanded to rest and refrain from working on Shabbat as a way to recreate an atmosphere of peace and calmness. This weekly holy day is the most revered in the Jewish traditions and rituals. Get your Tallit for Shabbat - buy tallis from the Galilee Silks Collection!
Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year and the ten days of penitence or teshuvah culminating on Yom Kippur. During this two-day festival, Jewish people greet each other with L'shanah Tovah, which means "for a good New Year" and many families are seen sharing some of Rosh Hashanah at a Synagogue. The holiday from the traditional times is celebrated with sweet or round foods such as apples and honey, all-day-long synagogue services and the blowing of the shofar- symbolic of our hopes for a sweet year.
Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is known to be the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Jewish traditionally observe this holy day with fasting (refraining from both food and drink for the entire 25 hours of the holiday), intensive prayer, and repentance, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. They also abstain or avoid other earthly pleasures, such as bathing and wearing leather shoes, something seen as a luxury in ancient times. On this holy day, it is believed that God forgives the sins of those who sincerely repent and show their repentance by improved behavior and performance of good deeds. To be wrapped in a distinguished Tallit for the High Holidays, you can buy Tallis that are classic or modern.
Sukkot is a Torah-commanded weeklong Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur is celebrated to mark the fall of harvest and commemorate the miraculous protection that God provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt. During this 7 days long festival that begins on the 15th day of Tishri, many Israeli families build their own sukkah in which it is customary to eat meals and sleep, shake the lulav- a palm frond bound together with myrtle and willow branches and the etrog- a kind of citrus.
Hanukkah, also known as the "Festival of Lights", is a Jewish festival that commemorates the recovery of Jerusalem and the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after the miraculous victory of the Maccabees against the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BCE. It is observed for eight nights and days, which, unlike most other Jewish holidays, has no restrictions whatsoever on work or travel. Many Jewish families and communities get together to celebrate this festive holiday by lighting the menorah, playing the game of dreidel and eating special fried foods like potato latkes or jelly doughnuts.
Each of the Jewish holidays carries its own customs and traditions regarding the celebration of the event, but one thing that remains common among the Jews is the wearing of the tallit.
