Sukkot is a week-long holiday that celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection of the Jews in the desert when they left Egypt. We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered, temporary home known as a sukkah and by shaking four species of plants (arba minim).

Check back around Sukkot to find out how you can celebrate with the JCC East Bay next year!
