The Endurance of the Festival of Lights

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Hanukkah is considered one of the top three most observed Jewish holidays in the United States. Yet, for a seemingly significant holiday in the American multicultural landscape, Hanukkah is barely made mention in the ancient rabbinic sources. The Talmud, one of Judaism’s central texts on Jewish law with rabbinic commentary, has little to say about the holiday.

If I was writing my own guide to Hanukkah, I would start with a different question, "When is Hanukkah?" More specifically, "How were the dates of Hanukkah chosen?"

The Heart of Rosh Hashanah

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

What is at the core of Rosh Hashanah? Yes, it is one of the most widespread Jewish holidays celebrated in the United States. Most people know the food associated with it and some of the symbols, but far fewer know what the holiday is really about. Before we get to the heart of it, let’s start with an easier question: When is Rosh Hashanah?
