Sukkot for the year 2026 starts on the evening of Friday, September 25th ending the 7 day festival on sundown Friday, October 2nd. The festival in Israel lasts for 6 days ending at sundown on Thursday, October 1st. For the Jewish calendar night begins before day, thus the holiday or festival begins on the sunset of the previous day.


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 with some overlap after Sukkot with Simchat Torah ending the annual cycle of bible readings.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
