Sukkot Holidays

Holiday Celebrations + More

Celebrate Jewish holidays and more with the J and our partners.

Celebrate Jewish holidays, community festivals, and annual observances with the J throughout the calendar year. We are ready to spend the upcoming September holidays with you! We have a full line-up of programs and events this fall celebrating Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. From cooking classes for the adults to arts + crafts for the little ones, there is something for everyone this September.

“Light the World” (Or Ha’olam) is a #VirtualSJCC series on SJCCtv, the Stroum Jewish Community Center YouTube channel. This is a new virtual series for our younger children (early childhood), linking daily life with Jewish values through engaging, entertaining, and educational experiences out in the world. Host + ECS teacher Emily Jane Schankerman combines outings, storytelling, and friendly conversations with community members to promote connection, curiosity, compassion for all, gratitude, hope, and the meaning of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world). Her first two episodes explore the High Holidays. Watch >>
