SUKKOT: A SUSTAINABLE HARVEST HOLIDAY
All-Ages Learning Program & Erev Sukkot Harvest Dinner
The Sukkot program will focus on the ways Sukkot helps bring us to appreciate and preserve the beautiful world we live in. We will celebrate the holiday together as a community- with singing, learning, ritual and food in the sukkah. Workshops for all ages will explore the idea of sustainability in a Sukkot context. Leora Mallach of Ganei Beantown will lead young children (ages 3-7) in exploring what plants might contribute to “local lulavim.” For teens and adults we’ll have activities inspired by CDT’s current Carbon Challenge, as well as Jewish text study on the theme of sustainability.
4:00pm: Gather in the CDT sukkah and make sukkah decorations!
4:30-5:30pm: Sukkot Workshops
5:35pm Welcoming Sukkot: We will gather with Rabbi Toba in the sukkah to welcome the Sukkot holiday, with songs and a story and special blessings.
6:00pm Erev Sukkot Potluck: We’ll share our bounty together at this holiday meal. If your last name begins with A-K, please bring a salad of any sort; L-Z, a veggie or fish main dish. Please avoid nuts, and please make enough for 20 people! Drinks and dessert will be provided.
