Seasons Greetings! In Israel, the holiday season is upon us. This year the Jewish month of Tishrei nearly coincides with the entire month of October. The first holiday of the month is Rosh Hashana, followed by Yom Kippur (on the tenth), then rolling right into the week-long holiday of Sukkot which begins on the 13th of the month. Each holiday is significant in its own right, but together they mark a break in the usual busy pace of life and allow both locals and tourists a unique perspective of the traditions of the modern, Jewish people.
