You can enter the Sukka, and shake the Lulav and Etrog in a Public Sukka near you

About the Project

This year the usual Sukkot celebrations are cancelled, and many of us may not be attending Sukkot services. But that should not mean that we will forfeit celebrating this special holiday.

Spending time in the Sukka, and shaking the Lulav and Etrog, is the soul of Sukkot. It is the conduit to connect with the Al-mighty, and the source of joyous blessings for the year to come.

With no Sukkot parties, and if you won’t be in Synagogue, you can still fulfill these wonderful Mitzvot.

At Chabad, we live the Jewish ethos that "all Jews are equal and are responsible for one another" inspired by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneersohn.

Sukkot runs from the evening of Friday, October 2 through Friday, October 9. The Mitzvah of Lulav and Etrog is fulfilled during the daytime on Sunday, October 4 through Friday, October 9. The 10th and 11th of October are Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah.
