Sukkot

With our worship spaces and sukkah beautifully decorated by the WHC Sisterhood, we shake the lulav and etrog and celebrate the fall harvest festival at Temple with a festival service on the first day of the holiday. Sukkot is also one of the major festival holidays during which we recite Yizkor. This service is held on the last day of the holiday at Temple.
