Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, marks the end of the fall holy day season. For seven days we eat our meals in the Sukkah. During services (except for Shabbat) we use the lulav and etrog, symbols of our agricultural roots. The holiday is also known as Zeman Simchateinu, the Season of Our Joy, and joy permeates our liturgy and all other aspects of the holiday. The last day of the festival, Hoshanah Rabbah, is marked by seven processions around the synagogue with the lulav and etrog.
We experience the exuberance of the holiday at B’nai Israel, when we see hundreds of lulavim and etrogim encircling our Dweck Sanctuary. Our Fanaroff Sukkah is busy throughout the week with a congregational dinner, our popular festival brunch, weeknight programs like Pizza in the Hut and the Super Under the Stars an open Sukkah night, and more.
