November 28 Ever wonder why the dates of the Jewish holidays change every year? The Jewish Calendar or Hebrew Calendar does not run concurrently with the Gregorian Calendar used in most of the world, so Jewish holidays fall on different dates every year. This is why we’ve provided the upcoming dates for the Jewish holidays so you can see when the holiday will fall next year or the year after that. What times do the Jewish holidays usually start? According to Jewish tradition, almost every Jewish holiday begins at sundown and continues until sundown the next day.
