Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai.
Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of Tishrei and is marked by several distinct traditions. One tradition, which takes the commandment to "dwell in booths" literally, is to build a sukkah, a booth or hut. A sukkah is often erected by Jews during this festival, and it is common practice for some to eat and even live in these temporary dwellings during Sukkot. Please see our Schedule of Services for a list of dates, times and locations of services. Babysitting will be available.
Modified Service begins at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Following the Service, please join us for lunch in the Rodef Shalom Sukkah at 11:30 a.m., no charge. Reservations requested by Thursday, September 27th.
