High Holy Error 

Editor:

I enjoyed Jada Brotman's article on her Jewish food experiences in various locales ("Is It Passover Again?" April 21). However, I'd like to point out that Passover is not, in fact, considered part of the High Holy Days. That title refers specifically to the Jewish New Year, consisting of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the intervening eight days. Passover is one of the three pilgrimage holidays, along with Shavuot and Sukkot, when the ancient Israelites made pilgrimages to Jerusalem.

(Editor's note: An editor's misunderstanding of holiness led him to insert the erroneous "High Holy Days" comment into Jada Brotman's Passover column. We thank Roz Keller for setting the record straight, and we beg the readers' forgiveness.)
