National Holiday Not a Public Holiday

Notes

  • Only the first and last days of Passover and Sukkot are national holidays, but there may be some disruption on intermediate dates; many shops and businesses may open but close early.
  • The festival of Chanukah is a holiday period, but it is not a national holiday - businesses remain open.
  • Jewish festivals always commence on the evenings before the dates given above.
