Are you wondering what the colorful tent is near Cobb Hall in the Main Quad? . It’s a Sukkah, a temporary booth for eating food during the Jewish Harvest festival of Sukkot . Sukkot traditionally takes place after the Jewish High Holidays, and commemorates the Divine protection of the Jewish people during their exodus from Egypt (as recounted in the holy text The Torah) . During the 7 days of Sukkot, food is only eaten inside the Sukkah. . Anyone is welcome to join in this tradition on campus. They’re even having s’mores on Thursday from 12-2pm!
Looking for some easy and fun kid-friendly activities for Sukkot? Here’s a list of 8 activities you can do today, every day this week, or one each day of Sukkot! . During the children’s program on #yomkippur my students made kindness chains to think about how to be their best selves in 5780—and to carry this feeling of being a #mensch into both the new year and the sukkah! . Edible Sukkot are so easy to make—you can do the healthy version with hummus, crackers, and cucumber or the sweet version with graham crackers, frosting and candy. Either way is delicious! . And what better ways to get your kids excited and engaged with the holiday than by reading the always-fabulous @pjlibrary books, listening to some great music (that also help explain the holiday itself!) from @einprat_fountainheads and @maccabeats and by creating fun play opportunities with materials they already love like @lego and #lincolnlogs 👍 And never forget the power of having kids create their own dance moves during a shake off! Hilarious and so much fun!! . Chag Sameach!! May you have a fun, meaningful, and lovely time celebrating Sukkot ❤️ . #sukkot#sukkotactivities#pjlibrary#pjlibrarybooks#jewish#jewishmom#jewishkids#jewishholidays#jewishcrafts#jewishactivities#lego#creativeplay#ediblecrafts
This is my favorite time of the year, full of special celebrations! To celebrate this beautiful time, I chose this song to share with you, that goes: "We have sinned before You, have mercy upon us" So powerful!
Mari Andrews creates delicate, abstract haiku-inspired sculptures using natural objects, and we are so excited to have her partake in our Sukkah Studio. In honor of #sukkot, the Jewish harvest holiday focusing on hospitality, honored guests, and community-building, the #sukkahstudio (“sukkah” means “hut” or “booth” in Hebrew) invites the community to interact and create alongside prestigious artists. TODAY, Tuesday, Oct 15 from 11am–3pm, Andrews will turn the Grand Lobby into an open studio and lead an activity where you can #diy your own sculpture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecjm#openstudio#sculpture#bayareaartists#jewishholidays
Happy Sukkot! Sukkot is the time to reap what we sow and celebrate our harvest, be grateful for what we have, appreciate nature as we sit in the sukkah and can see the stars, feel the breeze and be in community, welcoming in the #ushpizinour ancestors as well as any guest. Growing up in Israel, we used to build a #sukkah with kids from our neighborhood and class- a community effort. May we include, build, connect and be in gratitude this Sukkot and always. #jewishholidays#cantorreutbenzeev#gratitude#harvest#reapwhatyousow#love#unity#sukkot
