Fun Jimmy fact: He’s never lived anywhere where garbage day is not Friday Morning.

In more traditional Jewish communities—including both Orthodox and Conservative communities—Passover is celebrated for eight days. Family and friends gather together after nightfall on the first and second nights of the holiday for the high point of the festival observance, the Seder.

Yom Kippur is the fasting holiday for jews.

Yom Kippur – The Day of Atonement; a very solemn day devoted to fasting, prayer, and repentance. Observant Jews do not eat, drink (including water), bathe, engage in sexual activity, or wear anything made of leather on this day of awe.
