AITZ CHAIM COMMUNITY SUKKOT GATHERING SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10
The Aitz Chaim community will hold a Sukkot gathering on Saturday, October 10, 2020, at Gibson Park, east of the flower garden at Third Street North, at 1:00 P.M. Come an hour earlier to help us build a Succah. We will gather observing all of the health and safety guidelines concerning the coronavirus: washing hands, using hand sanitizer, social distancing, wearing masks. Instead of an esrog, we will use a lemon. Instead of a lulav, we will use wheat stalks.
Aaron Weissman will bring a camp stove to heat apple cider. There may be individually wrapped food items there. It has been awhile since we have seen each other in person. We want to have a small celebration to commemorate the ingathering of the Jews under God’s protective shelter, and the ingathering of the fall harvest to sustain us through the winter and whatever other hardships the next year may bring.
Please join us in celebrating our connection to God and His protection and provision for us, our connection to the beauty and the bounty of the Earth which He has created for our sustenance and enjoyment, and the strong and loving connections we have with one another.
