Our Jewish heritage is enriched by many meaningful traditions and
beautiful festivities through the year. The Jewish Festival Awareness
Series aims to bring these wonderful aspects of Jewish life to those
who want to participate in the Jewish experience but might not know
how, why or even when.
sponsoring High Holiday Services, open to all Jews regardless of
membership or affiliation or even lack thereof, or the Purim
festivities smack in the middle of a most busy season, the programs of
the Washington Office provide easy access to Jewish learning, practices
and traditions for so many.
thousands of holiday guides and festival kits distributed before Jewish
holidays throughout the year, this project touches countless
individuals and families, and based on correspondence we receive, is
often (unfortunately) their only connection whatsoever to the Jewish
heritage they wish to cherish.
course, in this age of instantaneous, electronic information, the
Washington office also provides a very valuable resource on the
internet so that anyone interested in learning more about these
festivals can do so anytime virtually anywhere.
