High Holidays Phase II

Tuesday, 17 September, 2013 - 2:41 pm

Sukkot is a mirror reflection of the Days of Awe (Rosh Hashanah – Yom Kippur) that is expressed via joy instead of seriousness. The Gematria (numerical value) of S’chach (the leafy covering of the Sukkah) is 100, the same as the number of Shofar blasts on Rosh Hashanah. The Sukkah commemorates the Cloud of Glory that was generated by the incense offered by the Aaron the High Priest on Yom Kippur. The seven days of Sukkot correspond to the seven days between RH-YK.

But without the joy it ain’t happenin’. Please join us for one of our joyous Sukkot celebrations.
