Sukkot

Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest.  It also commemorates the 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert after the giving of the Torah atop Mt. Sinai. Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of Tishrei, and is marked by several distinct traditions. One, which takes the commandment to dwell in booths literally, is to erect a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut. Sukkot (in this case, the plural of sukkah) are commonly used during the seven-day festival for eating, entertaining and even for sleeping.

Sukkot also called Z’man Simchateinu (Season of Our Rejoicing), is the only festival associated with an explicit commandment to rejoice. A final name for Sukkot is Chag HaAsif, (Festival of the Ingathering), representing a time to give thanks for the bounty of the earth during the fall harvest.

Temple B’nai Torah

andTemple Emanu-El

of East Meadow

to Merge on July 1, 2018

April 27, 2017

Good morning!  I want to thank all of those congregants who took the time to vote in yesterday's merger referendum, which passed with a huge margin, (177-12).  It was eerily similar to the vote conducted by Temple Emanu-El of East Meadow (TEEM) on Monday night (174-10).  The merger is ON, and the target date for the merging is July 1, 2018!!

We are entering into a very exciting period in our Temple's life, and I hope that you will all want to be a part of it. In the next couple of weeks, we will begin the process of impaneling joint committees to determine how things will be done in our combined Temple.  Some of you have already told me that you are interested in helping; some have even specified which committee(s) you want to serve on.  I would like to encourage everyone to volunteer to serve on at least one committee, if possible.  A list of committees will be sent out to the congregation in the next several days, and we will look to schedule a meeting with TEEM within the next couple of weeks (probably on a Sunday) to get the ball rolling.  

Again, I want to thank you all for your support of this major undertaking, which will have a positive impact on Temple B'nai Torah for many, many years to come. As always, if you have questions or concerns regarding the merger process from here forward, feel free to e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
