Shabbat and Sukkot Service: Build and Rebuild

Friday, October 2, 2020 14 Tishrei 5781

6:00 PM - 7:30 PMZoom

Join us for Sukkot and Shabbat, celebrating this special festival holiday.

Sukkot (booths) is one of the three pilgrimage festivals, along with Passover and Shavuot, that were originally agricultural celebrations.  Also known as the Feast of Booths or Feast of Tabernacles, Sukkot marks the fall harvest. Its significance, however, goes beyond being a holiday of thanksgiving for the harvest.  In the Amidah, Sukkot is described as “the time of our rejoicing.” Sukkot, falling as it does on the heels of the Days of Awe, offers us a sense of completion and spiritual gratification.

The Lev Project

The last letter of the Torah is a lamed, from the word “Yisrael.” The first letter of the Torah is a bet, from “Bereishit.” Those two letters spell the word, Lev, meaning “heart.” At Simchat Torah, we celebrate the completion of the annual Torah reading cycle. Torah is one of the pillars on which we build our lives and our community. Since we cannot be together in person this year, we invite you to create art on the theme of “Lev - Heart.”  What matters most to you and is at the center of your heart? How has your heart expanded or contracted in the last year? How is Torah at the “heart” of our community?  Send pictures of your art to afine@templebethel.org. We will incorporate the pieces during the service.
