Tashlich at the Creek  (near Synagogue)
Evening service is the beginning of the feast known as the "day of trumpets" in the Bible (sunset on Friday in 2023). It's the starting point of the "days of awe" a time of soul-searching and repentance.  In the morning, we listen to the words of the Torah, and special Psalms. We spiritually prepare ourselves for the day God examines the lives we lived this year. Since Rosh Hashanah falls on Shabbat this year, the sounding of Shofars and Tashlich custom are performed on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, on Sunday.

This year Sukkot begins on Friday evening, and we enjoy our first Shabbat at home in our Sukkot. During the Saturday Morning Service (the first day of Sukkot), we recite special festival prayers and read from the Torah. We enjoy the oneg time in our makeshift dwellings outside. Suktoberfest is a Tikvat David tradition that combines the best of ancient Sukkot festivities with Octoberfest fun. It begins with snacks, drinks, and games at 4:00 pm (on Sunday this year), and then we enjoy a grilled dinner inside our Sukkos and visit with each other. Sukkot is a week-long event, and Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah (Saturday evening) is the end of the Fall holidays when we read the final passage from the Torah scroll, immediately reroll it to the very beginning and begin anew in Genesis 1.
