Sukkot 2019 (October 13-20, 2019)
Sukkot is a weeklong Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur. Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt. We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth (known as a sukkah) and by taking the “Four Kinds” (arba minim), four special species of vegetation.
Rabbi Moshe Rudin, from Adath Shalom in Morris Plains, came to lead the WAE Center members and staff in the Sukkot celebrations.
