Sukkot

Ages All

Dwell in joy. Sukkot celebrates the fall harvest and serves as a reminder of the time when the ancient Israelites lived in the wilderness after escaping Egyptian slavery.

The most striking tradition is for friends, families and communities to build temporary huts (singular: sukkah, plural: sukkot) with a roof open towards the sky. The sukkah becomes a week-long space to inspire a shift in perspective by hosting guests for meals, sleeping under the stars, or spending time by oneself outdoors.

Sukkot begins at sunset, September 20 // Observed September 21 – 27, 2021
