Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai.

Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of Tishrei and is marked by several distinct traditions. One tradition, which takes the commandment to "dwell in booths" literally, is to build a sukkah, a booth or hut. The Adat Chaverim Brotherhood makes it an annual tradition to build the Adat Chaverim Sukkah, providing a place for the Religious School to decorate the walls and hang items from the cieling.

For Sukkot services times, be sure to check the Temple calendar.
