Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,
Yom Kippur is almost upon us. And four days after Yom Kippur comes Sukkot, the festival of booths / tabernacles, in which we build little houses in our backyards and “dwell” in them (or at least dine in them) for a week.
You’ve heard the proverb “many hands make light work.” Please come add your hands to ours on Sunday, September 30, as we build our sukkah at 2pm! It’s not difficult labor, but it gets so much easier when we have multiple people on hand to help set things up.
(And if you happen to have anything which would make a good sukkah decoration — strings of lights, autumn wreaths, anything waterproof — bring it along!)
Then join us to rejoice in the sukkah on Friday evening, October 5, at 5:30pm with a potluck. (More on that later.) And feel free to reserve the CBI sukkah for your own use anytime during the week, if you want to host a dinner party or come enjoy tea or wine under the stars — there’s a sign-up sheet in the hallway near the restrooms.
Thanks for lending your hands and your hearts to our celebration of this wonderful festival. Look forward to seeing you soon!
