*Holy days, known as "Yom Tov" days are similar to Shabbat in that we traditionally attend special synagogue services, enjoy a festive meal, and light candles to begin the festival. The Yom Tov holidays are: Rosh Hashanah;
Yom Kippur; Sukkot (beginning two days and last day, Shemini Atzeret); Simchat Torah; Pesach; and Shavuot .
