Sukkot

Friday, October 7 
5:30 pm Tot Shabbat in the Sukkah
6:00 pm Congregational Dinner & Sukkah Decorating
7:15 pm Sukkot Shabbat Worship Service with Yizkor in the Sukkah

Sukkot celebrates both the fall harvest and our deeper connection to nature. It is a joyous season that symbolizes our people’s redemption and God’s protecting presence as they wandered through the wilderness. Sukkot is one of the most physically beautiful holidays because of the sukkah (temporary booth) that we decorate with symbols of the harvest, and the lulav and etrog, which we shake as we pray for a good season of rain. Our Sukkot service will also include the yizkor remembrance of loved ones we have lost over the past year, for whom we observe kaddish during this festival. Festivities to take place in the Klein Courtyard, followed by a special oneg. 

Saturday, October 8
2:00-4:00 pm Congregational Open House at Rabbi Jaffe’s Home

Meet your friends and neighbors as Rabbi Jaffe and his family welcome us to their yard with its sukkah and playground. Refreshments will be served. 


Simchat Torah

Monday, October 17 
7:15 pm Simchat Torah Service

Simchat Torah, meaning “The Joy of Torah”, celebrates the completion and new cycle of reading the Torah. We hold up the Torah as it is completely opened and read the final verses of Deuteronomy and the first lines of Genesis.  A festive oneg will follow to celebrate the sweetness of the Torah.
