Holiday Notes:

Day Of Atonement (Yom Kippur): Because of the way the calendar is set up, Yom Kippur can not occur on the first, third, or sixth day of the week. This helps to deal with issues such as food preparation and burial issues along with the scheduling of the holiday Hoshanah Rabbah.(1)

Simchat Torah:  The observance of Sukkot is on the 15th day of Tishri. It is a 8 day holiday. The first 6 days are known as Sukkot. The Seventh day takes upon itself a new name called Hoshana Rabba and is considered a holiday of its own because the requirements of Sukkot no longer apply. The Eighth day is known as Shemini Atzeret. The next day after the Eight days is Simchat Torah. Some congregations (mostly in Israel) celebrate Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah on the same day. Outside of Israel it is more common to have 2 separate days. This was originally necessary to allow for the news of the official recognition of the holidays timing to travel outside of Israel. This is no longer necessary but the tradition is already in place.

Purim: Sometimes this holiday is celebrated on the 14th or 15th of Adar depending on the custom of your geographical area. The United States is the 14th.

Fast Day Note: Sometimes when a Fast Day falls on the Sabbath an adjustment is made to allow the Fast Day observance to be held just before or just after the Sabbath instead of the actual day itself. In most cases, fasting on the Sabbath is not done.

Fast of Gedaliah: When Rosh Hashanah falls on Thursday and Friday, the fast is postponed until Sunday.

Holocaust Remembrance Day: The internationally recognized date comes from the Hebrew calendar and corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on that calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. When the actual date of Yom Hashoah falls on a Friday, the state of Israel observes Yom Hashoah on the preceding Thursday. When it falls on a Sunday, Yom Hashoah is observed on the following Monday.(2)
