  • Sukkot starts:

    [judaism][yom-tov][Shalosh-Regalim] Sukkot, or sometimes written as Succot, is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei. It is one of the three biblically mandated festivals Shalosh regalim on which Hebrews were commanded to make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. Sukkot is intended as a reminiscence of the type of fragile dwellings in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of travel in the desert after the Exodus from slavery in Egypt.

Notes:

[judaism] In Judaism, this day begins at sundown on the evening before.

[yom-tov] This day is yom tov, so it has similar obligations and restrictions to Shabbat in the sense that normal work (melacha) is forbidden.

[Shalosh-Regalim] Pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem.
