The Sukkah, a temporary structure covered with vegetation or bamboo, commemorates the ancient journey the Jewish people traveled in the Sinai desert wilderness on their way to Israel.

Sukkot, which is a joyous holiday, is also commemorated by eating in the Sukkah, shaking the "Four Species" of plant life — a citron fruit, palm branch, willows twigs and myrtle stems  —in honor of the harvest season.

“Sukkot is my favorite of the Jewish holidays — it really gives you an opportunity to connect with nature and the harvest season,” says Rabbi Eli Kornfeld. “When one takes the four species they feel connected with the earth and blessed to be able to partake in the bounty of vegetation and nature.”

The Sukkot holiday begins on Wednesday evening, Oct. 4 at sundown and ends on Friday  Oct. 13.

Chabad is known for its open doors and welcoming atmosphere, which allows everyone to enjoy any program that interests them, whether unaffiliated or a member elsewhere. At Chabad, the belief is that Judaism should be fun, joyous and easily accessible.

The Family Sukkot Carnival will begin at 11 a.m. at 90 Beaver Avenue here. The event cost is $10 for adults and $8 for children.
