Sigd Festival Readings

This is an archive of special readings for the Sigd festival.

Sigd (ሰግድ, ‘Prostration’, Hebrew: סיגד‎, also romanized Sig’d), or Mehlella (Ge’ez: ምህልላ, lit. ‘Supplication’), also Amata Saww (ዐመተ ሰወ, ‘Grouping Day’) is one of the unique holidays of the Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jewish) community, and is celebrated on the 29th of the Hebrew month of Marḥeshvan. Previously, Sigd was celebrated on the 29th of Kislev, and after a calendar reform in mid-19th century it was moved to its present day, 50 days after Yom Kippur.
