Throw Some Shade: Sukkot Workshop
Monday, Oct 2 @ 8pm | Rabbi Mark Wildes | $5

Discover how the holiday of Sukkot represents a shift from somber reflection of the High Holidays to joyous celebration!
You’ve heard the translations and buzzwords for Sukkot:
#FeastofTabernacles  #PilgrimageHoliday #AgriculturalFestival
#Thanksgiving #FruitHarvest

But what does this holiday really celebrate and commemorate?
Why do we build  hut-like temporary dwellings?
What is the historical significance?
Why do we shake a lulav and etrog?
Why is it customary to wear white?
How do we navigate the special prayer book, the “machzor”?
