Your Sukkah Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Perfect This Year
The High Holidays are going to be different this year, but Sukkot, a home-based, outdoor holiday, is waiting for you to make it special. These Sukkahs are all shapes, sizes and places, but they let you see the stars, feel the breeze and have a meal together. Pick a spot and decorate it to make it special for the week of Sukkot.
This year, we encourage all North American Jews to invite a few friends of another faith to participate in this tradition. In a year where the High Holidays will be celebrated differently, Sukkot is a home-based holiday that is ready to be rediscovered during COVID. If you already have a Sukkah, are thinking of getting one or just plan to “fudge it” on your porch, this is the time for beginning a new family tradition. 2 for Seder: In the Sukkah is an active way to strengthen our friendships and push back on the hatred and anti-Semitism we are seeing while we are apart.
2 for Seder in the Sukkah is:
A Jewish Experience Meant to Be Shared – Just like 2 for Seder, sharing a meal with a friend of another faith gives people a first-hand experience of Judaism, cutting through the noise of anti-Semitic tropes and news.
Celebrated at Home, Outside – Since Sukkot is not as widely celebrated as Hannukah or Passover, we provide a Guide , Tips and a webinar to guide you through and get a jump on your own Sukkot family traditions for all members of the family.
SukkahSAFE – Sukkahs are partially open to the outside. Our free Guide includes a SukkahSafe Fact sheet (as part of our free Guide) for a safe in-person or virtual expereience.
Join us in our virtual sukkah for a fun night of music across North America!
