Many of our Jewish neighbors are celebrating Sukkot, a joyous harvest holiday referred to in Hebrew as Z’man Simchateinu (the time of our rejoicing).

An important part of the holiday is the sukkah, a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long festival and often topped with branches and decorated in a fall harvest theme. The sukkah symbolizes the frailty and transience of life and its dependence on God.

For more information about celebrating Sukkot, contact Rabbi Diana at www.kehilathanahar.com.

And gut yontiff to our readers celebrating the season!
