Sukkot thru Simhat Torah

sukka

Moishe Schnitman Sukka at BEKI

Lulav and etrog are used each morning from the beginning of Sukkot through the morning of Hoshana Rabba, but not including Shabbat. To order a lulav and etrog contact the office at office@beki.org. Some services, and qiddush for the Festival days and Shabbat, are held in the sukka, weather permitting. Please dress accordingly. During Ḥol HaMoed and Hoshana Rabba (except on Shabbat), some wear tefillin until Hallel is begun; others do not wear tefillin during this period. The general practice at BEKI is to not wear tefillin.  The BEKI Moishe Schnitman Sukka is open for use to members and their guests, supporters and neighbors; no representation is made by the synagogue concerning the kashrut of food brought by members and their guests, supporters and neighbors for personal use in the sukka.

See Calendar or This Week & Beyond at BEKI for details and updates.  Due to the pandemic, fewer services are being held, outdoor venues are preferred, and services are highly abbreviated.  Qohelet may be read together during Hol HaMoed (TBA).

Hear the blessings for festival meals.
