Holidays Continue 2021 | 5782: September 19-28

Sukkot, the most joyous of Jewish holidays, offers us an opportunity to connect with the natural world and give thanks for the autumn harvest. On Simchat Torah, Jews around the world complete the reading of the Torah and begin anew with the first words of Genesis.  And on Shemini Atzeret we recite yizkor (memorial) prayers in remembrance of our loved ones. Celebrate and observe in person and/or virtually with Beth Am.
