Shir Tikvah Sukkot Potluck Gatherings
Sunday, September 23rd to Saturday, September 29th
Sukkot begins just four nights after Yom Kippur. It is our people's fall harvest holiday - a time to honor our hard work of the holidays, celebrate food, and relax. Of course, we are commanded to build a structure reminiscent of how our ancestors traveled the desert in ancient days - the sukkah. The Torah commands us (and our Sages expand upon it) to dwell under it - eat, study, and move as many of our typical activities towards the sukkah. Join us for one or more evenings in the sukkah to gather, eat, learn, and relax.
A note about potlucks: you are asked to bring a dish you are proud to share, one that reflects the spirit of the holiday, and that will nourish at least three times as many people as are in your party. Please also note the only meat meal is Sunday, September 23rd - the rest are vegetarian. If you attend the meat meal, please bring non-dairy food.
Please RSVP below on the one or more Google Sheets by including your name, food item, and number in your party.
