They are, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover and Shavout. The Jewish holiday I will be discussing is the Passover. I will be discussing when it is celebrated, historical origin, the significance, religious practices associated, and cultural differences. There are two very important timelines in Jewish history. They are, before the destruction of the Second temple and after the destruction. After getting a brief overview of Jewish history, I was able to take a few points that explained a little bit about what they are about.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
