Home/Sukkah Ritual

  • Light festival candles at home with two blessings (l'hadlik ner shel yom tov and shehechiyanu) no later than 6:27pm.

  • It is customary to light a long-burning or yahrtzeit candle as well (without a blessing) so fire will be available to transfer for lighting candles on Tuesday (7:27pm) evening or for cooking during the holiday.

  • Kiddush for festivals should be made in the Sukkah followed by the additional blessings asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu leisheiv basukkah then shehechiyanu.  We invite ushpizin (spiritual guests to sit alongside the people we have invited in (See here for more info).  We say hamotzi as usual, over two challot, and additional prayers are included in Birkat HaMazon.  If it is raining, we eat indoors.

  • All seven days of Sukkot, we make an effort to eat, drink, learn, and spend free time in the sukkah.  Conceptually during this period, our homes become our temporary dwellings and our sukkot our permanent dwellings.
