Dear Friend,

Along with spending time in the sukkah and waving the Four Kinds, a central observance of the holiday of Sukkot is holding festive evening-time celebrations.

Known as Simchat Beit Hashoevah, they harken back to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, when all-night dancing, singing and acrobatics would accompany the joyous drawing of water that was poured on the altar every day of the seven-day holiday.

With the coronavirus pandemic, many will be hosting their own Simchat Beit Hashoevah for the first time.

To assist them in creating an experience that is celebratory, spiritual and user-friendly, Chabad.org has has created a beautiful booklet.

Each day, the user is provided with an easy-to-repeat Torah thought and story, as well as an insight into the daily ushpizin, otherworldly visitors. Coupled with a lively dance track, everything is provided, save for the refreshments and participants, which must be locally sourced.

Happy Sukkot!
