The holiday of Sukkot is immediately followed by Simchat Torah (Rejoicing of the Torah), when we conclude and begin anew the reading of the Torah. In celebration of this wonderful life force and guiding light, we become the Torah's feet and dance into the night. Light your candles and contemplate ways you're going to celebrate the Torah year-round! And make sure to soak up your last days in the Sukkah's protective cloud! Chag Sameach from The Chai Center!
We'd like to remind you that this evening's holiday candle lighting time is 6:08 PM
*Light Holiday candles Monday evening after 7:05.
Tuesday 7:04 PM Holiday ends: Havdalah
* Candles must be lit from a pre-existing flame.
Chag Sameach / Happy Holiday from TheChaiCenter.com!
