Sukkot Day 1 Morning & Service for Families with Young Children
October 5 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join BZBI as we celebrate the holiday of Sukkot. We will all have Kiddush in the Sukkah after services.
Sukkot Serivce for Families with Young Children will begin at 11 a.m. in Lower Wolfsohn. Afterward we will head to the Sukkah for Kiddush.
Sukkot begins five days after Yom Kippur and is named for the sukkot (temporary huts) we build in honor of the holiday. BZBI will build a sukkah on the corner of 18th and Spruce to celebrate all seven days of the holiday days and its intermediate days. According to rabbinic tradition, the sukkah represents the huts the Israelites dwelt in while wandering for 40 years in the desert. Sukkot is also an ancient harvest festival and many of the symbols (including the lulav and etrog) and rituals of the holiday connect to thanking God for the harvest.
