The Month of Tishri

Level:  Basic

The month of Tishri (September and October on the Gregorian calendar) is clearly the busiest time of the year for Jewish holidays.  In the month of Tishri, outside of Israel there are a total of 13 days of special religious significance, 7 of them days on which work is not permitted; even in Israel without doubled holidays, there are 12 special days, 5 of them on which work is not permitted.

These holidays include the holidays known as the "High Holidays", the most important holidays of the Jewish year:  Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  If a Jew ever goes to synagogue (other than for weddings or bar mitzvahs), it is for these holidays.
