Megathread for Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah 5783

This is a megathread for Succus, Shmeeny Atseres, and Simkhas Toirah.

This is NOT in any way meant to limit the number of Tishrei-holiday posts standing alone on the sub, but rather provide a central location for questions, comments, and advice as we approach the end of reading the Torah in the world of the ‘new normal.’ Some folks still aren’t comfortable being in closed spaces with others, at least without vaccines and/or masks, and synagogues and communities the world over are still grappling with providing services and services without excluding anyone for whatever reason. Fortunately, as we all know, being field workers, harvest huts are notoriously . . . outside.

However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll be alone (aside from the Ushpizin) this year for this most harvestable time of our year. Ask questions and share ideas here to help your fellow Jews the world over erect their booths and celebrate the Scroll of our People with as much mindful community as possible.

Resources for Sukkoth (סוכות : Huts . . . but most translations call it Feast of Tabernacles/Booths/Ingathering)

Resources for Shmini Atzeret (שמיני עצרת : Eighth Day of Assembly)

Resources for Simhat Tora (שמחת תורה‎ : Joy of Torah)

These links were from a quick consultation with Rav Google (and just knowing some good resources). There are many, many resources about our Autumnal chaggim out there. If you have any to add to this list, please share below.

And of course, the havura of Reddit is here for you. You are not alone for Succath, Sh’meenie Atseret, or Simkhat Tore this year. We are all in this together, and will be together again next year, in Jerusalem.
