Modern history creates unofficial set of high holy days for Jewish people

There are two seasons of Jewish high holy days. There's the traditional one, which arrives in the fall with the Jewish New Year and the Day of Atonement, both are days of intense prayer and introspection. And then there's the new season, which is the annual observance of Holocaust Memorial Day and, last week, Israel Independence Day.
