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. 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.

Simchat Torah


Friday October 9
5:30 PM Zoom Simchat Torah and Shabbat Evening Service

Saturday, October 10

10:30 AM Zoom Simchat Torah and Shabbat Morning Service with Yizkor
Simchat Torah, Hebrew for "rejoicing in the Law", celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. Simchat Torah is a joyous festival, in which we affirm our view of the Torah as a tree of life and demonstrate a living example of never-ending, lifelong study. Torah scrolls
are taken from the ark and carried or danced around the synagogue seven times. During the Torah service, the concluding section of Deuteronomy is read, and immediately following, the opening section of Genesis, or B'reishit as it is called in Hebrew, is read.
