Sukkot

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.

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.
