Our sukkah is almost ready!

The CJM is building its own sukkah for gathering and community building and has invited six local artists to inhabit the sukkah as an open studio. The free Sukkah Studio provides a space for the artists to share their practice with visitors and even work with interested folks to make something together throughout the days of Sukkot.

Sukkot is the week-long Jewish harvest festival. One of the rituals for Sukkot is for families to build a simple hut (called a sukkah) in their backyard or on a porch, in which they festively gather, eat meals, and even sleep. The holiday is one of celebration for the abundance of nature shared with family and guests (uspizim). So please don’t be shy, say hello, be our honored guest!
