Up next on our (very full) plate of September Jewish holidays this year is Sukkot, which translates to "Feast of Tabernacles." Finding its origins in agricultural harvest time, Sukkot spans seven days and begins with a day of special prayer services and holiday meals.

Traditionally, the Jewish family will serve all meals (and sometimes even sleep!) in a sukkah for the duration of the holiday. Blessings are recited with the four species in hand.

If you're looking for us, we'll be in our sukkot until Sunday.
See you then!
