Sukkot 5776

Sukkot celebrates the harvest in Israel and is called Z’man Simchataynu, Season of our Joy. A sukkah (a booth or temporary structure) is a symbol of joy because it reminds us of our freedom. The Israelites lived in booths while wandering from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land. On Sukkot we greet each other with “Chag Sameach” – “Happy Holiday”.
