Israeli Traditions

The Jewish new year is the beginning of the year which i memorable because this is the day god judges every individual based on their actions. Another tradition based on the Jewish new year is eating an honey dipped apple symbolizing a good year to come. Another tradition celebrated in Israel is Yom Kippur which is the holiest day of the year in which no one is supposed to work or bathe on this day. Some holidays are festival based like the Sukkot or the Shavuot. The Sukkot is an eight-day festival that celebrates the seeds we planted a year before and also enjoy the environment around you. The Shavuot is the Festival of Weeks, it celebrates the day God gave the Torah, Shavuot occurs on the sixth of the Hebrew month of Sivan.
