Sukkot 2022

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.

Order your lulav and etrog in time for Sukkot 

Thanks to the resources of the  Dollye and I. Wolford Berman Educational Initiative Grant, B’nai Israel is pleased to offer lulav and etrog sets at the discounted rate of $50 to families who are participating in this mitzvah for the first time. All others will be asked to pay $60. Order forms were due by Tuesday, September 20.
