Sukkot 2022 (October 9-16, 2022)

Sukkot is a week long Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur. 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.The Sukkah commemorates G‑d's sheltering our ancestors as they traveled from Egypt to the Promised Land. The Four Kinds express our unity and our belief in G‑d’s omnipresence. 

The first two days (sundown on October 9 until nightfall on October 11 in 2022) of the holiday (one day in Israel) are yom tov, when work is forbidden, candles are lit in the evening, and festive meals are preceded by Kiddush and include challah dipped in honey.

The intermediate days (nightfall on October 12 until sundown on October 16 in 2022) are quasi holidays, known as Chol Hamoed. We dwell in the sukkah and take the Four Kinds every day of Sukkot (except for Shabbat, when we do not take the Four Kinds).

The final two days (sundown on October 16 until nightfall on October 18 in 2022) are a separate holiday (one day in Israel): Shemini Atzeret / Simchat Torah.
