The Jewish holidays are the centerpieces of our year. These are the days when we remember events that forever changed the course of our history.

But they are much more than that. The festivals are pauses in time, primed for personal introspection and spiritual reconnection: windows to the psyche, fortifying us with tools for facing everyday challenges. Kaleidoscopes of beauty and meaning, they change how we see ourselves, our relationships, and our world.
