Sukkot is an especially important time of year for us to remember the needy in our community. Please bring nonperishables and canned goods for the Community Food Bank.

What does Sukkot mean?

The word "Sukkot" means booths or tabernacles, and refers to the temporary dwellings in which we are commanded to live during this holiday.  Sukkot, often translated as the Feast of Tabernacles, is one of the three pilgrimage festivals (the other two are Passover and Shavu'ot).  The festival of Sukkot begins on the eve of the 15th day of Tishrei, just five days after Yom Kippur.  It lasts for seven days and is a time to reconnect with the natural world.

Temple Emanu-El traditionally holds a Spaghetti Under the Sukkah dinner, on the Friday night that falls during Sukkot.  For details about this year's events, check back in August.
