The holiday of Sukkot is Judaism’s fall harvest festival. Its agricultural symbols such as the lulav (a group of branches that represent the bounty of the harvest) and the sukkah (a symbolic temporary dwelling booth) take us back to an era when our ancestors had an agrarian lifestyle.
At Temple Israel, this weeklong festival is an opportunity, not only to use the symbols of the season, but also to engage the entire congregation in related activities. Together we build beautiful sukkot, both indoors and out. Our sanctuary is festooned with harvest bounty. We celebrate with seasonal melodies and we use the sukkah for eating, blessing and teaching. Please join us for this festive holiday.
