Sukkot (October 10-18, 2022) is an especially joyous holiday which celebrates the close relationship we had with God in the desert, when we were sheltered beneath God's Clouds of Glory. We relate to this closeness most now, after the cleansing and rebonding with God of the High Holidays.

Sukkot is also the time when the crops were gathered from the fields in ancient Israel. We thank God for our material blessings of the past year and pray for rain for the coming year. We dwell in a Sukkah to commemorate the Clouds of Glory, and we take the four species as part of our supplication for rain. read more »

Sukkot culminates with Simchat Torah, in which we dance and celebrate the completion of our yearly reading the Torah.
