Note on English Titles for Days and Festivals
The holy days and festivals have come to be known by a number of different names when translated into English. Understandably, sometimes individuals, or groups, prefer to use one name, instead of another. This might be for reasons of familiarity and habit, or perhaps it’s in trying to uncover the core meaning intended by the name, day or festival.
The list of events presented here, does not claim to be the only English rendering of names for these events, or the most correct. Sometimes names were used here because of familiarity by many (Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles). Other names can be used (Day of Purgations, Feast of Booths), which are of course, also valid.
This list is but a pointer to dates set apart in God’s calendar, using names that are hopefully generally recognised. Some Hebrew names and/or scriptural references have also been offered, to point to a common place of understanding, of which event is being referenced. Let not the imperfect rendering of names from other languages to English, become a stumbling block to fellowship (Titus 3:9). How we come together and observe and respond to these holy days and festivals, is the matter of greater importance.
