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.
Live Music! Shake the Lulav!
Connect with fellow MZ members at Mount Zion’s Sukkah. Come to the Mount Zion patio (ZaiKaner-Perwien Terrace) where each individual or family will be invited to shake the lulav. During your time, you will be able to enjoy live music featuring Arabic flute, violin, and percussion, and buy lunch (please bring cash). If you have questions, contact Shai Avny at 651-698-3881. RSVP required All ages welcome. Masks required for all over 5 years. Eating may be done spread out on the lawn. We will need to cancel for inclement weather; check our website.
Please note: This is new time and a change from our original plan which was to be at different locations.
