Sukkah Under the Stars!

Enjoy Sukkot Under the Stars

Four days after Yom Kippur we begin the festival of Sukkot, the celebration of the harvest (think Thanksgiving ’cause that’s where we got it from)!

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

Sukkot is coming!

Help Build and Decorate Our Community Sukkah!

Come join us this Sunday 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

We’ll start at 11:00 and order some lunch after we finished our Sukkah!.

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

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
