All Holy Days start the Evening Before at Sunset


The day of the Passover; the special Passover service with the washing of feet (see Foot washing Question). unleavened bread, and wine; is held just after sunset.  Work may be done on the remainder of the day.

The annual holy days on which work may not be done are:
     1st Day of Unleavened Bread
     7th Day of Unleavened Bread
     Pentecost
     Trumpets
     Day of Atonement
     1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles
     Last Great Day

With the exception of The Day of Atonement, the prohibition against work on these days is against "servile work" or that which one does for a living. So, the preparation of food for that holyday is allowed on each of these annual Sabbaths. However, the Day of Atonement is a day of total fasting from sunset to sunset and the prohibition against work is complete.

If you would like to learn more about observing or attending the Annual Holy Days,
please contact the minister closest to you.
