Following the High Holidays of Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur comes the celebration of Sukkot (literally meaning huts). Relating back to the times of the ancient Israelites wandering in the desert, this holiday is a time of great joy! Around campus we have a number of these sukkot, temporary huts, erected for the week-long celebration. Come check out the Kraft Center’s very own student-decorated sukkah located on the third floor terrace – it’s open to one and all!
Meals in the Sukkah
There will be festive meals served throughout the holiday in the Barnard Quad Sukkah– including on Shabbat. Standard shabbat/holiday meal rates apply.
All shabbat/holiday dinners served at 7:15pm; all lunches at 12:30pm.
Lulav & Etrog Purchase
- The agricultural undertones of the holiday of Sukkot are demonstrated by taking four symbolic species:
- Lulav (לולב) – a ripe, green, closed frond from a date palm tree
- Hadass (הדס) – boughs with leaves from the myrtle tree
- Aravah (ערבה) – branches with leaves from the willow tree
- Etrog (אתרוג) – the fruit of a citron tree
We are offering three different sets – $45, $65 and $75. Sets are priced based on the measure of the etrog’s Jewish legal “beautification”; all sets are perfectly kosher. Each set includes all 4 species.
Selection/pickup will be at the Kraft Center between 10am and 2pm on Thursday, September 20th. The vendor will be present with a large inventory from which you will have the option of selecting your own set if you prefer. If you plan to pick up during that window, you can pay the vendor directly and do not need to fill out the form below.
If you are not available to pick up between 10am and 2pm on Thursday, September 20th, you must fill out the form below including payment information in order to have a set aside for you for later pickup at the Kraft Center.
