Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret & Simchat Torah

Celebrate Sukkot with Us!

IMG_6572…On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Sukkot, seven days for the Lord. -Leviticus 23:34

The Festival of Sukkot begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day after Yom Kippur. It is quite a drastic transition, from one of the most solemn holidays in our year to one of the most joyous. Sukkot is so unreservedly joyful that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as Z’man Simchateinu, the Season of our Rejoicing.

The full schedule for Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret & Simchat Torah can be seen below.
