Sukkot

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 – $55, $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.

If you would prefer that a set be selected for you, simply indicate below which option you prefer. If you would like to choose your own from the selection available from our seller, you can indicate that below as well. In both cases, payment is made upon pickup directly to the seller.

Pickup will be on the 2nd floor of the Kraft Center on Thursday, October 13th from 11:30 AM-2 PM or 5-8:30 PM.
