The dates are hard to predict, but here are a few tips for the high holy days in 2022. The Jewish holidays of Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Tisha B’Av will fall in 2022. The High Holy Days begin in 2021.

Rosh Hashanah

When will the high holidays of 2022 fall? The first high holiday is Rosh Hashanah, which falls on Sunday, September 25, and ends on Tuesday, September 27. It is the Jewish New Year and the first of the High Holidays, ten days before Yom Kippur. The holiday is observed on the first two days of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. In the Torah, this month is called Yvm Trvh.

The Jewish calendar is different from the civil calendar. It is known as a ‘Luni-Solar’ calendar because it follows the moon and sun cycles. Because of this, the length of days changes from year to year. During each season, the sun rises and sets in different locations. The times of nightfall, dawn, and sunset control the length of the day. During the Jewish New Year, people spend time with family and friends. To symbolize purity and light, white clothing is customary during the holiday.


In twenty22, the Jewish High Holy Days will begin after sunset on October 9 and will end at nightfall on October 16. There will be restrictions on work during Chol Hamoed, but all work will be permitted on Sukkot Rabbah. The next day, Shemini Atzeret is holy and will follow immediately after Sukkot. The Jewish calendar begins at the time of creation and ends when the sun goes down.

The Jewish calendar begins with the first day of the year, so the first day of the festival is usually Sunday, October 9. The high holy days last seven days and end on the Simchat Torah, the final day of the annual reading of the Torah. Traditionally, Sukkot is celebrated on the eighth day, which is called Shemini Atzeret. It overlaps with Passover, Shavuot, and Yom Kippur, the last of the bible reading cycle.

Yom Kippur

If you’ve been looking for a way to mark the upcoming High Holy Days, you may wonder when the next ones are. The first is Yom Kippur, the day before Passover but also known as Yom Kippur. According to Jewish tradition, the day begins with the lighting of a candle. Then, many adults fast for 25 hours. While this fast is an opportunity to reflect on the year and your faith, it can also pose some physical risks. For example, some choose not to wear white or leather during the fast. While these traditions can be a challenge for those who are Jewish, you can compare them to those of other religions and see which one best suits you.

If you are Jewish, you may wonder when the High Holy Days will fall in 2022. Passover is the last Jewish holiday of the year and begins at sunset on Sunday, December 18. The high holy days last for eight days and commemorate the dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem after the destruction of the Second Temple. The Jewish calendar is based on solar and lunar years, the official calendar for Israel. During the days of Yom Kippur, the Jewish people refrain from work and other activities, which makes the holidays even more critical.

Tisha B’Av

Rosh Hashanah will begin on Sunday, September 25, and end on Tuesday, September 27, 2022. The Jewish New Year is celebrated with rituals, symbolic foods, and the shofar sound. It’s also the first High Holy Day and marks the anniversary of the creation of humanity and the special relationship between humans and God. Among other traditions, this holiday encourages reflection and a sense of unity among Jewish communities.

Tisha B’Av, also known as the Day of Atonement, is one of the most solemn days of the Jewish calendar. The Jewish people fast on this day to remember the terrible devastation of the First Temple in 586 BCE and the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. The fasting on Tisha B’Av is one of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar, and the tradition of fasting is deeply rooted in Jewish culture.


In most Jewish calendars, Pesach and other high holy days are celebrated in the Tishrei month. They commemorate the concepts of freedom, forgiveness, joy, and renewal.
