The Month of Tishri
Tishri falls in September/October
It is the busiest holiday month
The month of Tishri, which falls during the
months of September and October on the Gregorian calendar, is probably the
busiest time of the year for Jewish holidays. In the month of Tishri, there are
a total of 13 days of special religious significance, 7 of them holidays on
which work is not permitted.
These holidays include the holidays known as the "High Holidays," the most
important holidays of the Jewish year: Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur. A 2000 survey
showed that only 46% of all Jews affiliate themselves with a
synagogue, but 59% fast on Yom Kippur. If a
Jew ever goes to synagogue (other than for
weddings or bar
mitzvahs), it is for these holidays.
