Sukkot through Simchat Torah


Sukkot, with its time outdoors, “dwelling” in a beautiful fragile structure, the Sukkah, and shaking our lulav and etrog, is a highlight of the Jewish year. It is a grounding step, connecting us to the physicality of the world, after the 25 hours of internal contemplation that is Yom Kippur. 

Join us throughout Sukkot for programs, services, meals, and community. The PSJC sukkah is open to the community and guests throughout the week. 


Our Hoshana Rabah service includes the ancient tradition of beating the willow branches, and we continue our celebrations the next day on Shemini Atzeret with morning services. For Simchat Torah this year we join the Brooklyn Communitywide Erev (evening) Simchat Torah service on Zoom (don’t miss PSJC’s designated hakafah!); there will also be some in-person opportunities at Grand Army Plaza. On the day of Simchat Torah we will have our service in the PSJC yard (and on Zoom), and as is our tradition, everyone  present will receive an individual aliyah (call up to the Torah), as we begin the cycle of reading the Torah once again with Bereishit (Genesis).
