From The Rabbi's

Desk

Sukkot, Feast of Booths, is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (varies from late September to late October). It is one of the three biblically mandated festivals Shalosh R’galim on which we are commanded to make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem.

The holiday lasts seven days (eight in the Diaspora). The first day (and second in the Diaspora) is a Sabbath-like Yom Tov (holiday) when work is forbidden, followed by the intermediate days Chol Hamo’ed and Sh’mini Atzeret. The Hebrew word Sukkot is the plural of Sukkah, which is a walled structure covered with S’chach (plant material such as leafy tree overgrowth or palm leaves).

Daily Minyan Urgent Request

The morning and afternoon minyans are fragile and exist without a strong safety net of men to make a minyan if some of our regulars do not come.

If you are observing the yahrzeit of a loved one and it falls on a day when we do not have a minyan you would be upset and rightly so. We need you not only when you are observing yahrzeit, but a few days each month to insure that someone else will be able to say kaddish. A few days each month is not too much to ask.

By doing a mitzvah, you will be rewarded with a bigger mitzvah. Please contact the Rabbi or the Center office with your name and phone number; & when and how often & what time (morning/afternoon?) you can commit.
