UPCOMING JEWISH HOLIDAYs:
September 23rd - 30th, 2018
The seven days of Sukkot are celebrated by dwelling in the sukkah, taking the Four Kinds, and lots of Rejoicing. The Four Kinds express our unity and our belief in G‑d’s omnipresence. Coming after the High Holidays, it is a time of joy and happiness for Klal Yisroel.
Right After Sukkot comes:
Shemini Atzeret & Simchat Torah
September 30-October 2, 2018
Following the seven joyous days of Sukkot, we come to the happy holiday of Shemini Atzeret/ Simchat Torah.
In the diaspora, the first day is known by its biblical name, Shemini Atzeret. We still dwell in the sukkah, but without a blessing. Yizkor, the memorial for the departed, is also said on this day.
The second day is known as Simchat Torah, during which we complete and immediately begin the annual Torah reading cycle. This joyous milestone is marked with dancing, traditionally following seven circuits known as hakafot, as the Torah scrolls are held aloft.
