Hi Everyone!

Sukkot is the Jewish holiday that commemorates how protective "Clouds of Glory" surrounded the Jewish people after leaving
Egypt during the forty years of wandering in the desert. It also commemorates how the Jews lived in temporary dwellings
during that same time. Sukkot begins Sunday evening, September 23, 2018.

All the links and resources below are posted on the Sukkot resources page at:
