An Amazing Or Shalom Erev Sukkot

What an amazing day. With great weather, the men assembled together, finding the right posts and beams and washers and bolts to construct the sukkah. In the afternoon, families came to bring their ingredients for stone soup, create an edible sukkah with icing and graham crackers, and we had a processional march to the newly decorated sukkah led by the simchat torah band.

After supper and dessert, Chanting and Chocolate lifted the bayit to another level, and outside the eclipse of the moon reminded of the importance of sukkot – to never cease to be amazed by the beauty and wonder of nature, and the delight of children playing.

Tzedakah for Kol Nidre

Just a reminder that is is our custom to empty your pockets before Kol Nidre to make a contribution to Tzedakah before Yom Kippur. This year the bulk of tzedakah will be directed to helping sponsor refugees in their effort to come to Canada, so feel free to be generous with your gifts.

p.s. bring your or shalom high holyday tickets with you for early seating. See you Tuesday for setup and/or Tuesday evening for Kol Nidre.
