Sukkot for the year 2014 starts on Thursday, October 9th ending the 7 day festival on sundown Wednesday, October 15th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Wednesday, October 8th.


Sukkot is a seven day Jewish festival with the first day starting on the 15th day of the first month on the Jewish calendar called Tishri. This festival season is not a public holiday but many Jewish businesses and schools may have reduced hours. Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah are celebrated the next consecutive 2 days after Sukkot with Simchat Torah ending the annual cycle of bible readings.


Thursday, October 9th is day number 282 of the 2014 calendar year with -4 years, -8 months, -8 days until the start of the 7 day festival of Sukkot 2014.
