Sukkot and Simchat Torah at Temple Israel of Boston
Tthe High Holy Day season, continues after Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with the festival of Sukkot. One of the three agricultural pilgrimage holidays, Sukkot is a time to reexamine our relationship with nature and to remind ourselves of our vulnerability. During this time, we build sukkot, or makeshift huts, and eat in them for seven days. This allows us to reconnect with the earth and strip away that which no longer serves us.
We look forward to having you in Temple Israel’s sukkah for a week full of learning, praying, and togetherness. We offer Sukkot experiences for all ages and areas of interest as we recommit ourselves to our planet and to our vision of shelter for all people in this world.
