Did you know it's a Mitzvah just to eat or spend time in the Sukkah on this holiday?
At Chabad MIT, we transform our entire backyard into a Sukkah. Come by to make a special blessing or use our Lulav and Etrog. If you do not have a Sukkah of your own and would like to use ours at any point over Sukkot, please reach out by email to schedule a time.
Lulav and Etrog
Every day of Sukkot (except Shabbat) we take the arba minim, a.k.a. "Four Kinds'. What are the four kinds? A palm branch (lulav), two willows (aravot), a minimum of three myrtles (hadassim) and one citron (etrog). The first three kinds are neatly bundled together. The best place for doing this mitzvah is the sukkah, the outdoor holiday booth.
You can purchase your own set here. Alternatively, we will have a set in our Sukkah every day available for you to use. Please email us when you'd like to come by.
We may not be enjoying dinner together, but we would love to share in your Shabbat and holiday celebration. We will be offering Shabbat/Holiday packages for pickup on Friday, October 2 and Friday, October 9. Please complete the Shabbat package form, linked here, to order yours.
