Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and the Joy of Water

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

Join My Jewish Learning’s special class with Sarah Chandler! In ancient times, Sukkot opened with a water-drawing ritual which symbolized faith that the coming year’s rains would fall just in time. On Shemini Atzeret, we mark the beginning of the daily prayer for rain with a special prayer. How can these rituals inform contemporary Jews’ relationship to rain?
