Sukkot 5784 (2023)
We made it through the High Holy Days of 5784. We rang in the Jewish new year. We honored its double-celebration confluence with Shabbat. We stood together forgiven on Kol Nidre night. We plunged and soared on Yom Kippur, whose last shofar blast re-entered us into life after the High Holy Days.
Now we get to celebrate together. The festival of Sukkot, our "Season of Joy," begins the evening of September 29 – yet again coinciding with Shabbat. So we're off the Torah cycle for two more weeks while we revel in Sukkot and hang out in a sukkah.
You don't have a sukkah? It's still Sukkot, and there are lots of ways to celebrate.
