Erev Sukkot – Sukkah Decorating & Potluck Dinner

September 23, 2018 - 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sukkot – Sunday, September 23 – Turn, Turn, Turn! 

Each year during Sukkot we sing Pete Seeger’s song, “Turn Turn Turn,” which comes from a well-known line in the Book of Ecclesiastes (Kohelet), traditionally read during this holiday. “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” As the seasons change and we have reasons to contemplate and celebrate, music always plays an important part. This year we will decorate the B’nai Israel sukkah with upcycled CDs. 

Please join us for the start of Sukkot on Sunday, September 23 for decorating, dinner and a service. For dinner, main dish will be provided, but we ask families with last names A-M to bring a nut-free side dish or salad to share, and families with last names N-Z to bring a nut-free dessert to share.

5:00 p.m. – Sukkah decorating

5:30 p.m. – Pot luck dinner

6:00 p.m. – Service
