Sukkot is a special opportunity in the Jewish tradition to celebrate the harvest, gather outdoors, connect with the land, and reflect on our unique history as wanderers, placemakers, community architects, and stewards of the earth. We have a fantastic lineup of events featuring eclectic music, nourishing food and provocative learning. We’ll reflect on what it means to welcome the stranger into our lives, the significance of home, and the idea of finding shelter in the wilderness, both physical and metaphorical. Join us in our beautiful sukkah for these rich and evocative festivities, designed for all ages.
