Holidays

At WRT, holidays and festivals mark the sacred moments in time that bring our community together in observance and celebration. Each holiday prompts us to experience the unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the season, as well as to engage in the learning, social action, and arts and culture associated with its special moment.

The first date specified for each occasion marks the evening when the holiday begins since days on the Jewish calendar begin at sunset.
