  Sukkos and Simchas Torah

Print Version

Email this article to a friend

Sukkos begins on the 15th day of Tishrei and runs for seven days. It is a holiday of happiness, in part due to the celebration surrounding the harvest. The observances unique to this holiday are:

  • The taking of the Four Species
  • Our dwelling in Sukkot - special booths that remind us of G-d's protection.

    Although Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah appear to be the eighth (and ninth day, in the Diaspora) of Sukkos, in actuality, they are a separate holiday, which demonstrates G-d's love of the Jewish people, and the celebration of the Jewish people for the completion of the Torah.
