Sunday, September 23rd begins the Jewish holiday Sukkot, this holiday is celebrated until the evening of September 30th. Sukkah is the Hebrew word for ‘booth’ or ‘tabernacle’. Sukkots were the huts in which the Jewish people lived during their years in the desert after they left slavery in Egypt and before they arrived in the Promised Land (Israel). Sukkot begins two weeks after Rosh Hashanah and comes at the end of the High Holy days, which are the most serious days of the Jewish year.
On behalf of The Scholars Academy we hope all who celebrate this holiday enjoy.
