What Is Sukkot?

A Guide to The Jewish Holiday of Sukkot, The Feast of Tabernacles, and the Meanings Behind it

Sukkot 2017 (October 4-11 2017)

Sukkot is a weeklong Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur. Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt. We celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth (known as a sukkah) and by taking the “Four Kinds” (arba minim), four special species of vegetation.

The first two days (sundown on October 4 until nightfall on October 6 in 2017) of the holiday (one day in Israel) are yom tov, when work is forbidden, candles are lit in the evening, and festive meals are preceded by Kiddush and include challah dipped in honey.

Shabbat at Mark Zuckerber´s house, the richest jew in the world / Shabbat en la casa Mark Zuckerberg, el judío más rico del mundo

Mark Zuckerberg gives family heirloom kiddush cup to daughter
In a Facebook post, world’s richest Jew says he’s passing down his great-grandfather’s ritual goblet to 2-year-old Maxima

Mark Zuckerberg da herencia de la familia, la copa de Kidush, a su hija
En un post de Facebook, el judío más rico del mundo dice que está pasando la copa ritual de su bisabuelo, para Maxima, de 2 años de edad.

The world’s richest Jew may have pledged to give the vast majority of his wealth to charity, but Mark Zuckerberg’s great-grandfather’s kiddush cup is staying in the family.

El judío más rico del mundo puede haber prometido dar la gran mayoría de su riqueza a la caridad, pero la copa kiddush del bisabuelo de Mark Zuckerberg, se queda en la familia.

Posting photos of his Shabbat candles and challah on Friday night, Zuckerberg said that he would be giving the ceremonial cup to his eldest daughter, Maxima.

Al publicar fotos de sus velas de Shabat y challah el viernes por la noche, Zuckerberg dijo que estaría dando la copa ceremonial a su hija mayor, Maxima.

For shabbat tonight, we gave Max a kiddush cup that has been in our family for almost 100 years,” the 33-year-old billionaire wrote on his Facebook social media platform.

Por shabbat esta noche, le dimos a Max una copa de kidush que ha estado en nuestra familia por casi 100 años “, escribió el multimillonario de 33 años en su plataforma de Facebook de redes sociales.

“Her great-great-grandfather Max got it after our family immigrated here and it has been passed down through our family ever since,” he added

“El tatarabuelo Max, lo consiguió después de que nuestra familia inmigró aquí y ha sido transmitida a través de nuestra familia desde entonces”, agregó

Last month Zuckerberg and his wife welcomed their second daughter, August, into the world, two years after Maxima was born.

El mes pasado, Zuckerberg y su esposa recibieron a su segunda hija, August, en el mundo, dos años después de que Maxima naciera.

In January Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post that while he once questioned his Jewish upbringing, he now believes that “religion is very important.

”En enero, Zuckerberg dijo en un mensaje en Facebook que, mientras cuestionaba su educación judía, ahora cree que “la religión es muy importante”.

After he wished his followers a “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah” on December 25, one commenter asked:  “But aren’t you an atheist?

”Después de haber deseado a sus seguidores una “Feliz Navidad y Feliz Jánuca” el 25 de diciembre, un comentarista preguntó: “Pero, ¿no eres un ateo?”

In response Zuckerberg replied: “No. I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important.

”En respuesta Zuckerberg respondió: “No. Yo crecí judío y luego pasé por un período en el que cuestioné las cosas, pero ahora creo que la religión es muy importante “.

Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, practices Buddhism.

La esposa de Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan, practica el budismo.

The Facebook co-founder is one among billionaires who have vowed to donate most of their wealth to charitable causes. A Zuckerberg Chan Initiative established by the couple has pledged billions of dollars to improving life for their children’s generation with goals such as eliminating disease.

El cofundador de Facebook es uno de los multimillonarios que han prometido donar la mayor parte de su riqueza a causas caritativas. Una iniciativa Zuckerberg Chan establecida por la pareja ha prometido miles de millones de dólares para mejorar la vida de la generación de sus hijos con metas como la eliminación de la enfermedad.
