Hol Hamo’ed

The intermediate days of a festival. Both Passover and Sukkot have such days. These days which are not as sacred as the days that fall at at the beginning or the end, but they are also not quite regular weekdays, either. The Hallel prayers are recited during hol mo’ed, some kinds of work are forbidden, and religious families often take these days off from work and school.
