Learn More about Jewish Holidays

Knowing the common roots of the three Abrahamic religious traditions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – can help Christians to better understand and appreciate their own faith tradition. In this series of talks offered in person and online, Sister Susan Van Baalen, OP, walks participants through the roots of Judaism: its theology, Scriptures, household rituals, Sabbath observances, and festivals and holidays.
