Sukkot at Mount Zion
Sukkot begins five days after Yom Kippur and is the Jewish Festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. It also recalls the huts that the Israelites lived in as they travelled in the desert for 40 years after receiving the Torah at Sinai. At Mount Zion, we encourage people to spend as much time in the sukkah as possible throughout the week. We have many events and services in the sukkah, and we encourage people to come any time when the synagogue office is open to take the lulav and etrog, along with instructions on what to do with them, out to the sukkah. Learn about Sukkot’s background, customs, blessings, foods, and more.
