Rain, Nostalgia, and Empathy: Liturgical Poems for the Holiday of Sukkot

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

What is the connection between rain, the Temple, and caring for the other? In this class, you will look at the ways in which these themes connect in ancient Hebrew liturgical poems (piyyutim) written for the holiday of Sukkot. After first gaining a familiarity with the different genres of piyyutim and with their liturgical and historical settings, read closely from some of the piyyutim for Sukkot—several of which are still recited today—in order to gain deeper insights into how the holiday of Sukkot has been understood and celebrated throughout history.
