Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning “booths” or “huts,” refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. It also commemorates the 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert after the giving of the Torah atop Mt. Sinai. In the Jewish tradition, Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of the month of Tishrei, and is marked by several distinct traditions. One, which takes the commandment to dwell in booths literally, is to erect a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut. Here at Chapel Hill we put up a sukkot during the month of November. The children will be collecting non-perishable items and can goods for the Metrocrest Food Pantry. Please help us fill our sukkot with food, so that we can help families out during the holiday season.
