Jewish Occasions

Jewish celebrations are the mold that holds together Jewish tradition. These are the times when Jewish people from all over the world mark their long history and deep heritage together. There are many different Jewish holidays throughout the Jewish calendar, and often, Jewish celebrations occur weekly and not yearly.

Shabbat is a wonderful example one of the Jewish celebrations that the Jewish people look forward to every week of the year. Families sit together at the Shabbat dinner table, light the Shabbat candlesticks, and recite Jewish Prayers. This is possible the most widely recognized Jewish celebration.

The biggest and most fantastic Jewish celebrations occur yearly or sometimes even once in a lifetime. The Bris Milah is a baby’s circumcision ceremony that takes place on the eighth day after his birth. In this Jewish celebration the child is given his proper name by a Rabbi chanting Jewish blessings and prayers according to Jewish ritual.
