He sits outside the city waiting to see what will happen. Even though there was only enough untainted olive oil to keep the menorah’s candles burning for a single day, the flames continued flickering for eight nights, leaving them time to find a fresh supply. For example, Christians are not required by their faith not to work on Good Friday. Hymns, fasting, and meditations are, however, common means of celebrating this important holiday. Isn’t Yom Kippur the most famous fast day on the Jewish calendar? "One who eats and drinks on the ninth, is considered by the Torah to have fasted on both the ninth and the tenth" (Talmud Yoma 81b).

This was a dangerous thing for Esther to do, because anyone who came into the king's presence without being summoned could be put to death, and she had not been summoned. When the people pressured Saul into going against a command conveyed to him by Samuel, God told Samuel to appoint David in his stead.

Yom Kippur – Ultra-Orthodox Jews pray on the Ayarkon River banks as they participate in a Tashlich ceremony in the ultra-Orthodox Israeli town of Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv. The group then decided to light a lamp that would be an “eternal light.” However, there was only enough oil for about one day. I believe with perfect faith that it is only proper to pray to God. Jewish festivals and holidays are based on three main sources: commandments, rabbinical mandate and modern Israeli history.

A directory of links for the Jewish holiday Lag Ba'Omer, the 33rd day between Pesach (Passover) and Shavuot (the timing means the holiday usually occurs in late spring).

We sit on the floor (or very low chairs or benches). Jews celebrate several holidays and commemorative days that are really more national holidays rather than religious ones, because they celebrate events of national importance rather than religious events. Usually Reform Judaism and those who live in Israel only observe one day. Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men participate in a Tashlich ceremony at the Mediterranean sea, in the southern Israeli port city of Ashdod, Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013.

These holidays are called pilgrimage festivals because in ancient times all Israelite men were commanded to travel to the Temple in Jerusalem, to take part in the festival celebrations.
