Also feel free to cut and past to make this more fully your own--by adding your own words and eliminating parts with which you don't agree.

Welcome to Tikkun and NSP's Holiday Celebrations Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives want to help people of all faiths to celebrate holidays in traditional and new ways. That's why we're putting together this new section of our web site. For each faith tradition we will have a list of traditional holidays and from there we will collect sacred texts, rituals, art, poetry, ideas for liturgy, stories, and more so that we can expand everyone's understanding of each holiday and open people up to new ways of celebrating.

For example, here are our newest guides which include:

2010 High Holiday Supplement - Repentance and Atonement Are NOT Just for Jews - High Holidays 5771 | Yomim Nora’im (The Days of Awe)

2010 Passover Guide - A Haggadah Supplement - NOT a Replacement!

Chanukah Guide - Celebrate the World’s First Recorded National Liberation Struggle!

Christmas Guide-Contains both of the articles listed below:

  • Advent 2009: The End of the World As We Know It by JONATHAN WILSON-HARTGROVE
  • Twelve Gifts in Hard Times by AL FRITSCH

We need your help to make much more of this happen. Do you have a special way of celebrating a holiday from your faith that you'd be willing to share with the Tikkun and NSP communities? If so, please click here and tell us about it.  We're looking for holiday celebration information for these and other religions:

As we collect more and more holiday celebration material we'll make it available on our web site. 

Remember - in order to make this a huge resource for the world, we need your help! Please click here to tell us about materials you'd like us to include on this web site.
