Sukkot is the Jewish holiday that commemorates how protective "Clouds of
Glory" surrounded the Jewish people after leaving Egypt during the forty
years of wandering in the desert. It also commemorates how the Jews
lived in temporary dwellings during that same time. Sukkot begins Monday
evening, October 17 and continues until Wednesday, October 26th 2005.
(In Israel, ends Tuesday night, October 25th.)
The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment http://www.j.co.il
