Sukkot, commonly called the Feast of Tabernacles. Also in some translations Sukkot is referred to as the Festival of Shelters, and known also as the Feast of Ingathering. Feast of Tabernacles is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the seventh month, Tishrei. Sukkot is the next fall festival 10/3-10/11.
Feast of Tabernacles is one of the most joyful festivals on the Jewish calendar. “Sukkot,” a Hebrew word meaning “booths” refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. Also the holiday has also come to commemorate the 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert.
Also called Z’man Simchateinu (Season of Our Rejoicing), Feast of Tabernacles is the only festival associated with an explicit commandment to rejoice. Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Most important the feast is marked by several distinct traditions. One, which takes the commandment to dwell in booths literally, is to erect a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut. Sukkot (in this case, the plural of sukkah) are commonly used during the seven-day festival for eating, entertaining and even for sleeping.
Our sukkah has open walls and open doors. As a result this encourages us to welcome as many people as we can. We invite family, friends, neighbors, and community to rejoice, eat, and share what we have with each other.
