Sukkot (literally meaning "booths") is our joyous celebration reminding us of the temporary huts in which the Jewish people lived during their years in the desert after they left slavery in Egypt. Sukkot lasts for one week, ending with Simchat Torah, during which we celebrate finishing the cycle of reading the Torah, and beginning again.
During Sukkot, it is customary to build a sukkah, decorate a sukkah, eat in the sukkah and welcome guests into the sukkah.
On Sunday, October 16, we welcome you into our sukkah,
held at Rabbi Bravo's home.
