Sukkot begins on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei and continues for seven days. It is known by several names, none more descriptive than Z’man Simchataynu, Day of Our Rejoicing. Hag HaSukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, reminds us of the huts (sukkot) in which our ancestors dwelt in the desert for forty years on their way to the Promised Land.

Simchat Torah

Tuesday, September 28 - Wednesday, September 29

The final day of this holiday season, Simchat Torah (which in Israel is the same day as Shemini Atzeret), celebrates the festival of rejoicing in the Torah. We take part in a joyous ceremony known as seven hakafot, in which men, women, and children of all ages participate. It is on this day that we complete the annual reading of the Torah and begin again with the first words of Bereshit (Genesis).

Featuring Zachary and Aaron Mayer, along with our local DC klezmer players, to lead us in festive song & dance!

Erev Simchat Torah, Tue Eve, September 28 at 6:30pm

On Simchat Torah, the Torah scrolls wish to dance—so we become their feet! Join the Adas Israel community for a musical community celebration on the most joyous holiday of our holy calendar. Dance (at a safe distance) with Adas family and friends, and join us for a creative, safe, Simchat Torah experience.
