Sukkos Schedule and Laws

Sep 21st, 2010 by nzakon | 0


  • Eruv Tavshilin must be made before Yom Tov (see ArtScroll Siddur page 654); Lulav bundles must be made before Yom Tov.
  • Mincha/Candlelighting/Maariv: 7:05 PM
  • Yom Tov Kiddush
  • Special Note: If it is raining on the first night of Succos: One should wait approximately one hour to see if the rain will stop. If the rain continues he should go into the Succah; say the Kiddush with the “Shehechiyanu” blessing, wash as one usually does before the consumption of bread and eat at least a kizayis(oliv’s size) of bread in the rain. He should NOT say the blessing of “leishev baSukkah.” He may then complete his meal in the house. After the meal, he should wait until slightly before the Halachic midnight, 1:18 AM, to see if the rain will stop. If the rain stops, he then washes, enters the Sukkah again, says the brocho “leishev baSuccah,” eats at least a kibeitza of bread and then says Birkas haMazon(bentching).

  • Candlelighting (from a pre-existing flame): Not Before 7:58 PM
  • Yom Tov Kiddush
  • Special Note: On the second night, if it rains, one need not wait at all and he may begin his meal immediately in the house. Kiddush with “shehechiyanu” is made in the house. At the end of the meal, before saying the Birkas Hamazon, even if it is still raining, he should eat a kizayis of bread in the Sukkah in the rain. Again, a bracha of “leishev baSuccah” is not said. A bracha of “shehechiyanu” is not needed for the succah on the second night. One may then go back into the house to say the Birkas Hamazon. According to many opinions, even on the second night, one should wait again until slightly before the Halachic midnight, 1:18 AM, to see if the rain stops. If the rain does stop then the procedure is the same as the first night.
  • On all other days or nights of Succos, if the rain is so strong in the Succah that if it was raining in the house a person would be driven out of his home to find other shelter, or if the rain is ruining his food, preventing him from eating, he need not eat in the Succah. If one has already started his meal inside, and the rain stops, he may complete his meal in the house.
