North Dakota rabbi shall travel state for Sukkot

Sukkot begins Sunday at sundown and ends Sept. 30 at dark. For that right time, Chabad Rabbi Yonah Grossman will be on the highway along with his family and his hut, making stops in Grand Forks, Minot, Williston, Bismarck and dickinson. This is Grossman’s sixth Sukkot on the highway, in accordance with a news release from the Chabad Jewish Center of North Dakota.

Holiday practices include eating in the sukkah and shaking the “Four Species”, an everyday ritual where Jews shake a mixture of citron fruit, palm branch, willow twigs and myrtle stems. Grossman will stock the hut with bagels and lox at fine times, the release said, and he’ll also provide a couple of the “Four Species.”

“You want to make sure that every Jew in North Dakota has the capacity to celebrate their faith,” Grossman said in a statement. “You can find Jewish North Dakotans spread through the entire state. Connecting through the celebration of sukkot we can unify as you community.”
