Sukkot Orders
Know that it is not a lemon!
Sukkot and Simchat Torah
The seven days of Sukkot—celebrated by dwelling in the sukkah, taking the Four Kinds, and rejoicing—is the holiday when we expose ourselves to the elements in covered huts, commemorating G‑d's sheltering our ancestors as they traveled from Egypt to the Promised Land. The Four Kinds express our unity and our belief in G‑d’s omnipresence. Coming after the solemn High Holidays, it is a time of joy and happiness
Maot Chitim
The added expense of Yom Tov is too much for some in our community, right here in Skokie. In the weeks preceding Yom Tov, it's customary to assist needy families by providing them with funds for their various Holiday expenses and purchases. 
Kapparot with Money
It is customary to perform the  kaparot  (symbolic "atonement") rite in preparation for Yom Kippur. Some people use chickens, some use a kosher live fish; others perform the entire rite with money, and then giving the money – at least the value of a chicken – to charity. You can do that online here.
Holiday Videos
We curated some of our favorite videos for you from our Holiday Megasite!
