Wine and Song in the Sukkah Moves Across the Street

succot

On Friday, the JCC Sukkah was set up on the patio of Levin Hall. On Monday, high winds severely tested the impermanent structure. While our first Sukkah in our new home blew apart, our plans for Sukkot did not. Our programs have simply been moved a few hundred yards.

In yet another example of our community’s amazing collegial relationships, we were invited across the street to Bonai Shalom, whose Sukkah – nestled in the trees – survived the winds.

Thus, Friday’s Musical Happy Hour will be held at Bonai, as will Sunday’s Milk and Honey Farm program.

Our first happy hour, which takes place in Bonai’s Sukkah, is a free event featuring wine and song. No reservations required. Just join us from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for live music performed by Beth Ornstein and the Coffee Quintet, and Judy Megibow. Meet friends and make new ones in one of our many upcoming social events. The temperatures are expected to be in the mid-70s! Never the less, be sure to bring a jacket.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
