Festive Holiday of Booths – Sukkoth, Celebrated with Family Carnival and Kosher Pizza Party
Sunday October 16 will mark the 4th day of the Holiday of Sukkot, also knows as the Festival of Booths.
Unlike the High Holidays which take on a solemn and serious tone, the holiday of Sukkot is a joyous festival. To add to the festivities Chabad of NW Metro Denver will be hosting a Sukkot Family Carnival.
Kosher pizza will be served in Chabad’s large sukkah. A sukkah is a temporary outdoor room, covered with evergreen branches or bamboo mats where Jews enjoy their meals and other activities during the eight days of the holiday. The sukkah symbolizes G-d’s protection of the Jewish people during their forty-year journey in the desert. Participants will also have the opportunity to make a blessing and “shake” the Four Species that are special to the holiday. The Four Species, also known as the Lulav and the Etrog, are a palm branch neatly tied with a three myrtle and two willow branches (lulav) in combination with a citrus fruit (etrog) grown in Israel.
The event will take place on Sunday October 16th from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm. More information and RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 303.429.5177. There is a fee of $6 per person. The fee includes food and all attractions. The event will take place at Chabad of NW Metro Denver 4505 W 112th Ave. Westminster CO.
The event is sponsored by Mr. Dino’s Bath (303-404-9800).
