Sukkot & Simchat Torah 2018

Sukkot, a time of joy and happiness, commemorates God's sheltering our ancestors as they wandered in the desert. The final days, Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah, are marked by dancing with the Torah and even more joy.

Let’s Nosh

Beginning just four days after Yom Kippur, Sukkot coincides with the harvest when workers in Biblical times would live in temporary huts in the fields. Fall foods such as pumpkin and squash are served along with cabbage, grape leaves, peppers and other stuffed vegetables symbolic of a “full” harvest.

Fun for the Whole Family

Whether you're living in a sukkah, eating in a real sukkah, or just a virtual one, your family will enjoy having fun together with these creative activities.

For the Little Ones

Even your youngest ones will be able to make these, with a little help. But isn't that what holidays are all about?
