Sukkot is a beautiful nature-focused Jewish fall harvest festival. We decorate a sukkah – a temporary structure, open to the sky, whose origins are tied to both the harvest and the traditional pilgramage to the Temple in Jerusalem. The sukkah connects us to the Jewish value of hospitality, and also reminds us of our responsibilities as stewards of Planet Earth.
This year our sukkah is being designed and erected by one of our B’Mitzvah students! We are all excited to see this backyard creation made by a clever Destination Imagination competitor. We will all make and shake lulavs out of local Colorado flora, sing some songs, listen to some stories related to the holiday, and — of course – eat! Please come dressed for the Colorado weather and bring a harvest vegetable to share. We are also collecting non-perishable goods to donate to Community Food Share.
Click the ATTEND button on our Meetup event page and we will send you the exact address a few days before the event.

Beth Ami is the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado and is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.
Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.
Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!
