Sukkat Shalom

This week we begin the first of five 5-week Judaism modules. In this first module, we will be teaching the Jewish value of סֻכַּת†שָׁלוֹם Sukkat Shalom and the Caregiving Principle of Creating a Feeling of Safety.

The Hebrew phrase, סכֻּתַ†שָׁלוֹם (sukkat shalom), means “shelter of peace,” a place that generates the feeling of safety and protection. It is part of the Hashkiveinu blessing in the evening service, in which we request that God:


U’fros aleinu sukkat sh’lomecha.

“Spread over us Your shelter of peace.”
