Dinner in the Sukka

Saturday, September 30, 2023 15 Tishrei 5784

6:30 PM - 9:00 PMEDCJCC

The holiday of Sukkot starts just five days after Yom Kippur and this year, the holiday starts on Friday, September 29th and ends on October 6th. Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection God provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt. We acknowledge and celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth known as a Sukka. Another observance for Sukkot is to take a lulav (palm frond) and etrog (citron), recite a blessing over them, bring them together and wave them in six directions – right, left, forward, up, down and back. Interestingly, Sukkot is the only Jewish holiday that does not commemorate a historic event. In celebration of Sukkot this year, please join us in the Sukka that will be in the EDCJCC parking lot. Each person should bring his/her own main meal, beverage of your choice, and a side or dessert to share. Please note that in keeping with the kashrut policy of the EDCJCC, we respectfully request that you not bring meat into the Sukka. To RSVP, please email mgasthalter@gmail.com to reserve your seat.
