In my experience, many Christians are at least somewhat familiar with a number of holy days of our Jewish sisters and brothers.

Many of us have heard of, and perhaps know something about, for example: Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year; Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement; Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, celebrating Divine provision in the wilderness; Hanukkah, sometimes thought of as the Jewish Christmas or Epiphany for gift-giving, but better thought of as a festival of lights recalling both the Maccabean revolt against the atrocities of the Seleucid Empire and the rededication of the Second Temple at Jerusalem; Purim, the victorious conclusion of the story of Esther and her guardian Mordecai; Pesach, Passover; and Shavuot, the Festival of Weeks, celebrating God’s gift of the Law to Moses on Mt. Sinai.
