  • The Torah ends and begins again!

    Immediately following the seven-day festival of Sukkot comes Simchat Torah (October 17, 2014) when we conclude — and begin anew — the annual Torah reading cycle. The holiday is marked with unbridled rejoicing, especially during the "hakafot" procession, as we march, sing and dance with the Torah scrolls.

    Sukkah, Dinner and a movie, guess which one?
  • Four days after Yom Kippur we celebrate the seven-day holiday called Sukkos. In preparation for the holiday we build a sukkah which is a temporary hut covered by a roof made of sechach — branches or any other material that grows from the ground and is detached from it. There must be enough sechach to provide shade but not too densely packed that you cannot see the stars at night. During the entire seven days of the holiday we are required to leave our permanent homes and take up residence in the sukkah as much as possible. Therefore, we eat our meals there, entertain our guests there and even sleep there. The sukkah reminds us of the huts that the Jewish people lived in during the forty years that they wandered in the desert prior to finally entering the land of Israel. The sukkah also symbolizes the miraculous clouds of glory that G-d enveloped the Jewish people, giving them shelter and protection.
