Celebrate Sukkot

On Wednesday, Oct. 8, we kick off the eight-day “festival of huts” that celebrates a bountiful harvest and commemorates the 40 years we wandered in the desert. 

Religious and Hebrew School students will decorate the sukkah, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Parents and other adults are welcome to join them. We will welcome the ushpizin (mystical guests) in a kabbalistic Sukkot ceremony at 5:30 p.m. followed by "pizza in the hut" at 6. 

Please contact the synagogue office, at 724-8857, by noon on Wednesday, so we have a head count for pizza. Thanks. 

Our community also will shake the lulav and etrog during festival hallel on Shabbat morning services, Saturday, Oct. 11.
