why don't Jehovah Witnesses keep the 7 feasts of YHWH as mentioned in Torah?

They believe that those commandments to observe feasts have expired.

Because the feasts are part of the law covenant given the the fleshly nation of Israel.
So in obedience to Jesus, we do not celebrate the festivals.

Because they're not Jews. The Torah laws about feasts was only ever for the Jews. Mind you, the name of Yahweh's witnesses was given to the nation of Israel - the Jews - by God himself but they decided to apply that to themselves in the early 1900s a.d! So you ask a good question, seeing as they call themselves Yahweh's witnesses. Who is going to believe them now? Isaiah 43:10 appropriated by the jws but then they ignore the rest that applies to them!

Yahweh is the Jewish form of Jehovah.

They don't actually do anything that's Bible-based. They make it up as they go along. See their history.

The seven feast were only given to the Jewish people. No where in the Bible are any non-Jews (such as Enoch, Noah, Job, etc.) required to keep those feast. The fact that Christians are not required to keep the Mosaic Law or the various feast days is stated many times in the New Testament. It is the main subject of the book of Galatians and the letter to the Hebrews. It is also part of Paul's letter to the Roman.
As a Christian, we want to partake of any of the feast, we can. And I have partake of the Sedar meal. The apostle Paul wrote the he wanted to travel to Jerusalem at at point so he could partake of the Passover/Sedar there. But we are not required to keep them.
the are a part of the covenant that god made with the Jews, not part of the covenant that he made with Christians.

JWs is a cult loosely based on some aspects of Christianity and a peculiar interpretation of the Bible.
