There are too many Jewish Holidays celebrated in ways according to their importance. It’s forbidden to work during some holidays. Some are celebrated for just one day while the others for days.
The Jewish calendar is a very complicated one considering the other calendars. Because the date of the holidays changes every year.
Sometimes it is 2 weeks early than the previous year’s, sometimes 3 weeks later. It changes every year and updated holiday dates are announced by the Jewish authorities to the society.
