Holidays are a big deal to us. No matter where we grew up, they are a part of our annual rhythms and often hold some of our most cherished childhood memories!
Did you know that for the Jewish people the fall holidays, also known as the “High Holidays,” are also found in YOUR Bible? That’s right! And they are important to your faith, but many Christians have never heard about them.
That’s why we developed the High Holidays Bible Reading Plan to help guide you through the scriptures that will make these holidays come to life while revealing the significance of the Biblical truth embedded in them.
We would love for you to follow along with us as we explore God’s heart for His people, the Biblical Feasts, and your faith together! Here’s a crash course for starters:
