Establishing Holidays for Generations

Throughout their years in Diaspora, Jewish communities around the world developed remarkable annual celebrations, animated by their rich local heritage. Among these community traditions, the Sigd, the Mimouna, the Bsisa, and the Saharana holidays have gained national prominence in Israel in recent years. Other holidays, however, remain obscure, such as the Festival of the Daughters, celebrated at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Tevet.
