11. High Holidays VERIFIED
From the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to the eight-day celebration of Hanukkah, a typical Jewish holiday list normally spans from March through December when using a secular calendar. But because the Jewish calendar is different, holidays can be hard to keep track of from year to year as the dates in a secular calendar move around.
11. High Holidays
When are Jewish holidays this year? Use our updated Jewish holiday list to plan your celebrations and share traditions with family and friends. The following major holidays are happening in 2022 (Jewish Years 5782-5783). Note that holidays begin at sundown on the previous day.
The High Holidays are two different holidays, separated over the course of 10 days. The first is Rosh Hashanah, a two-day celebration of the Jewish new year. Eight days after that, we have Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah starts on the night of Sunday September 13 this year, and Yom Kippur starts Tuesday night September 22.
"With just a few weeks before the onset of the Jewish New Year, the question of where to attend services is high on the list for many Jewish families and singles. Recognizing the often high price tag attached to the experience, Chabad of Alameda is offering their friendly and welcoming services for free for individuals of all ages in the Alameda Jewish community.

Jewish Americans are not a highly religious group, at least by traditional measures of religious observance. But many engage with Judaism in some way, whether through holidays, food choices, cultural connections or life milestones.
For instance, roughly seven-in-ten Jews say they often or sometimes cook or eat traditional Jewish foods, making this the most common form of engagement with Jewish life among a wide range of practices and activities measured in the survey. And six-in-ten say they at least sometimes share Jewish culture and holidays with non-Jewish friends, that they held or attended a Seder last Passover, or that they observed a Jewish ritual to mark a lifecycle milestone (like a bar or bat mitzvah) in the past year.
Monthly attendance at Jewish religious services is equally common among Jewish men (20%) and women (21%), and roughly equivalent among younger Jews and older Jews. Those who are married to a Jewish spouse attend Jewish religious services at much higher rates (36% at least monthly) compared with those who are married to a non-Jewish spouse (5%) or who are not married (16%).
"I have discussed 9/11 in the past, but I won't be talking aboutit on the holidays just because of the coincidence of the dates,"says Rabbi Melvin Granatstein of Green RoadSynagogue (Orthodox).

Over the past year and a half we have replaced HVAC units in our Sanctuary with high-efficiency units. We have also installed upgraded MERV 13 filters and added UV light components in all HVAC units throughout the entire building. These upgrades will improve filtration and kill harmful germs, viruses, bacteria, mold and fungi. During services we also increase the rate of air exchange bringing in fresh air constantly.
Fall is a critical time for those facing food insecurity heading into the holidays; your donations will hugely impact our neighbors in need. Join us and Manna Food Center in our community-wide partnership to collect food for those in need.
