Holidays are a big deal to us. No matter where we grew up, they are a part of our annual rhythms and often hold some of our most cherished childhood memories!

Did you know that for the Jewish people the fall holidays (also known as the “High Holidays”) are also found in YOUR Bible? That’s right! And they are important to your faith, but many Christians have never heard about them. To get a quick overview of the Hebrew/Biblical calendar, you can read more about it here. But today, we would like to focus specifically on the significant holidays that are fast approaching!

We developed the High Holidays Bible Reading Plan to help guide you through the Scriptures specifically on these days. It will help the holidays come to life for you, while revealing the significance of the Biblical truths embedded in them.
