Welcome to our blog page covering God’s feasts or holidays, also known as the Mo’edim or appointed times. You can find a list in places like Leviticus 23. These are the dates for the year 2022 and 2023. Remember that days start the evening before. See also our Manna Booklet for complete information you can print out for your own use.
We publish these dates to help you with requesting time off from work and other planning. Please note the year, because sometimes we update in the middle of the year and Passover for instance is already past.
