Men and boys dancing on Sukkot


Thousands of men in Jerusalem dance with their Four Species on Sukkot – the Festival of Joy!

The Festival of Sukkot is described as the “Season of our Rejoicing!” The Torah commands us no less than three times to rejoice and be only happy on Sukkot. No other Jewish holiday receives this instruction more than once.

On Sukkot Jews celebrate Jewish unity—as symbolized by the sukkah, the temporary hut, whose holy walls bring us all together, and the Four Species that symbolize the essential unity of all Jews notwithstanding differing levels of Torah knowledge and religious observance.

Watch these Jewish men dance with their Four Species as they celebrate the most joyous holiday on the Jewish calendar!
