Jewish Holidays 2012

The traditional Jewish/Hebrew calendar is based on a lunar calendar with 12 lunar months of 30 days.  Every two to three years, an intercalatory year is added to adjust to the solar cycle.

Jewish festivals begin on Sunday the evening before.  The Hebrew calendar begins with Rosh Hashana, which is the Jewish New Year.

Below is a listing of Jewish holidays and feasts as they fall in the 2012 Gregorian calendar.

*In both the Jewish and Christian traditions, the name of G-d is treated with honor and respect.  In the Jewish tradition, in order to show respect, the name of the L-rd is written without a vowel.  The idea is that if a document with His name on it is destroyed or deleted, His name will be spared because it was not written out fully.
