Sukkot/Simchat Torah 5783

Sukkot is the “Festival of the Ingathering,” the Biblical harvest holiday where we celebrate the abundance in our lives while remembering the precariousness of our ancestors’ journey through the wilderness.  On Sukkot we build and eat our meals in the sukkah, wave the lulav and etrog at services, and are commanded to be joyous! 

Here are some in-person only opportunities to do all three!

See the links to the right for community-building and volunteer opportunities! 


Erev Sukkot 
Sunday, October 9, 4:30-6:30 pm
CDT Sukkah (Kramer-Zisk backyard, Newton)

People of all ages are invited to join Rabbi Toba and Rabbinic Intern Akiva Nelson in the CDT sukkah as we welcome the Sukkot holiday and wander in the wilderness with our tradition’s rabbinic texts, exploring what Sukkot can teach us about impermanence and our connection to the ground beneath us. 

Bring a picnic dinner!
