They Are Very Much Relevant All the festivals are very much relevant, because they shape identity. I am the product of a Jewish mother, but a non-Jewish father. I did not start celebrating the holidays until my adult years. I love doing so, because they put in contact with who I am. So anybody who has some type of Jewish heritage in them, should do so because they will better understand what they are a part of. I have gone to group sederim, where a lot of people from the former Soviet Union were there, because they felt the same way I did. Discovering identity has to be an individual commitment. Reply
