Sukkot is coming!

Help Build and Decorate Our Community Sukkah!

Sunday, October 13, 2019  — 1:00 to 3:00

Come join us this  and participate in the awesome Mitzvah of building a Sukkah, connecting us to our past, present and future! We have the frame already standing, all we need are the flimsy walls erected, a roof of natural vegetation (do you have any trees needing to be trimmed back?) that allows the sunshine and the stars to peak through and YOU!   — Rabbi Abby



Wear comfy clothes, bring vegetation to hang or to cover the shelter, grasses, branches, cornstalks, flora, step stools, work gloves.

We will have pizza in the sukkah (weather permitting)!


The Roof Covering: The sukkah needs to be covered with sechach—raw, unfinished vegetable matter. Common sukkah roof-coverings are: bamboo poles, evergreen branches, reeds, corn stalks, narrow strips (1×1 or 1×2) of unfinished lumber, or special sechach mats.

Shabbat in the Sukkah

Friday, October 18,  6:00 PM

We celebrate all that we have harvested through our introspection and self -reflection, our new beginnings and our letting go. We build a fragile booth, a Sukkah, not unlike the Chuppah the bride and groom stand under as they begin a new life together. As we begin a new year together, the Sukkah reminds us of the fragility of life and that our protection, grounding and strength do not come from the walls around us, but rather from the love and support of friends, family and community and the abundant gifts from our Earth and the Divine Source of Blessings!   — Rabbi Abby
