Sukkot

sukkot

Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom marks Sukkot, the seven-day "Festival of Booths," with a family-friendly celebration.

Sukkot is a harvest festival held in the autumn shortly after the conclusion of Yom Kippur.

Part of the celebration involves building a sukkah, a temporary structure built outdoors. It is a reminder of the way the Jewish people wandered in the desert.

At Oheb Sholom, a special service is held on the first night of Sukkot, preceded by an informal dinner and an opportunity for the young and not-so-young to decorate the congregation’s sukkah. Everyone gets a chance to perform the mitzvah of holding the lulav and etrog, the plants and fruit that symbolize the holiday.
