“Day follows day with wearisome monotony. Only the holidays twine themselves together to form the circle of the year. Only through holidays does life experience the eternity of the river that returns to its sources. Then life becomes eternal.”
–Franz Rosensweig, 1886–1929
Holidays and festivals form the circle of the Jewish year. While celebrating and observing with our community fills an important role, there is also an essential component which we can fulfill at home, especially for our children, for whom we set the example of Jewish worship.
