THE JOY OF SUKKOT

Beginning Monday evening, September 20, Jews usher in the holiday of Sukkot (Festival of Booths). It marks a most joyous time of year, culminating in the holiday of Simchat Torah (September 29). Sukkot celebrates the 40 years of Jews wandering in the desert, and being protected by G-d, dwelling in tents during the Exodus. We’re commanded to eat all our meals in the Sukkah during the week-long holiday. (Some hearty souls even sleep inside.) We also must pray using the “Four Species” every day; the four kinds being the Etrog (citron), Lulav (palm frond), Hadassim, (myrtle twigs) and Aravot (willow twigs).

We invite you to experience the happiness of this holiday with us at the Cruger Avenue Synagogue. Pray with us inside our shul, then partake in hearty kosher meals in our spacious, decorative outdoor Sukkah. All are welcome and, as always, services and meals are FREE of charge!
