Following closely on the heels of the Yamim Noraim are the festivals of Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah. Sukkot was known by the rabbis as HeHag, “the festival”, because of its crucial importance in the religious life of the people, and because of the great joy associated with the festival. 

We will meet in-person for Sukkot services on Tuesday September 21 and Wednesday September 22 at 10:30 am. Watch Narayever Net for details and to register. 

The Narayever sukkah will not be available this year because we are not in the shul. Members who can do so are encouraged to build their own sukkah at their homes. For information about how to build a sukkah, please contact Rabbi Elkin

Shemini Atzeret, with Yizkor and Tefilat Geshem, will be observed in-person on Tuesday September 28 at 10:30 am.

Assuming that physical distancing protocols have been relaxed by then, Erev Simchat Torah services will take place in-person that night at 8:00 pm – please watch Narayever Net for confirmation as the time gets closer.

We will conduct Simchat Torah morning services on Wednesday September 29 at 10:30 am, to close out this year’s yom tov season. Again, watch Narayever Net for confirmation and to register.

Remember – the Jewish holidays don’t end at break-the-fast at the end of Yom Kippur. Please join us!


Interested in being a part of a Sukkah hop? As we will be without our Narayever Sukkah again this year, we are looking for families who are building a Sukkah who may be interested in hosting individuals or small family units to say the blessings or for a l’chaim. Please send an email to and we will help to coordinate.

For families with kids ages 11 years and under:
