Sukkot (“booths”) is the 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”, is to build a sukkah booth. Check our calendar for the Sukkot service, which is held in our sukkah.
Each year, our “Sukkah Crew” erects the sukkah and takes it down the following weekend. If you want to become a member of this august and select crew, contact us.
