Sukkot Evening Service
Sun & Mon / Oct 9 & 10 / 6:30 pm / 87th Street and Online
The festival of Sukkot derives its name from the sukkah, the temporary dwelling or booth built especially for the holiday. The rabbis disputed whether the term sukkah refers to actual booths or to the clouds of glory which made a Divine roof over Israel in the desert. Tradition combines these two views by making it a mitzvah to build an actual booth, and stating that the booth represents Divine protection.
