Sukkot

Sukkot begins at Sundown on October 4 and ends at Sunset on October 11, 2017

sukkot4gridSukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest.  It also commemorates the 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert after the giving of the Torah atop Mt. Sinai. Jews have observed the holiday by building sukkot (booths) in their yards and spending some or all of the week living in them.

At Judea Reform, we celebrate Sukkot with a special worship service -- sometimes at the synagogue, sometimes at a campground. Even if you don't build your own sukkah at home, there's a community sukkah beside our building, so you can have a meal, wave a lulav, or smell an etrog. Want to learn more about Sukkot?
