Sukkot and Simchat Torah at BetenuBetenu Sukkah

Join Betenu in celebrating the festivals of Sukkot and Simchat Torah.  Sukkot is the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. Simchat Torah celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah, immediately followed by beginning the next cycle, reading the opening section of Genesis.

Betenu will celebrate these festivals on Friday evening October 21 at 7:30 PM, with services led by Rabbinic Intern Rav Bryan Mann. On Sunday October 23 at 12:15 PM, Rav Bryan will lead an Adult Ed discussion on 
"Welcoming in Guests with Joy: A Text Study on the Themes of Sukkot and Simchat Torah".  All are welcome to attend both events, and to visit the Sukkah constructed by Betenu's religious school students. For more information, contact the Betenu office at 603-886-1633, or click here to send email.
