Each Sukkot we give thanks for the fall harvest and commemorate 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai. The men of the Temple Shir Tikva Brotherhood build a wonderful sukkah that is decorated by our Shir Tikva religious school students and enjoyed by all.
For our intimate and joyful Sukkot Yom Tov morning services, we gather in prayer and song, wave the lulav and delight in the wonderful fragrance of the etrog. Services are followed by Kiddush in the sukkah.
Our Friday evening Simchat Shabbat service is followed by a special Kiddush in the sukkah and a candle-lit oneg under the stars — featuring a lovely selection of hors d’oeuvres, hearty soup and hot cider.
On the eighth day of Sukkot, we observe Shemini Atzeret. On Yom Tov morning, we close the season of holidays with joy as we share Yizkor memorial services together.
