This day marks the beginning of Holy Week, a period of reflection and devotion leading up to Easter. Palm Sunday services often include the blessing of palm branches, which are distributed to the congregation, followed by a procession into the church to reenact Jesus' entry into Jerusalem.

Traditionally, people attend synagogue services, exchange gifts of food known as "mishloach manot", give to charity, and partake in a festive meal. Costumes and masks are often worn, emphasizing the joyous and festive spirit of the holiday.
