When are the Jewish holidays?

Following is a calendar of the dates of Jewish holidays through 2016. Jewish years (5773-5776) are listed across the top, followed by the corresponding secular years. The dates of Jewish holidays are always the same on the Jewish calendar (e.g. Rosh Hashanah is always on 1 Tishrei), but they fall on different days on the Gregorian calendar each year.
