Sitting on the edge of wonder, it is time to build the sukkah and dine under the stars with the region's young Jewish professionals, leaders, community, family, and friends. It’s harvest time. In Sacramento, perhaps more than many cities or regions around the world, we can very much identify with the spirit of Sukkot.
Tomorrow evening, Friday, Sept. 24, join NextDor and PJ Library in Sacramento for a Shabbat Sukkot dinner together! We'll dine outside in the sukkah, learn about Sukkot traditions, shake a few lulavs, and read stories. PJ Library is even providing the food! This event is the evening before NextDor's own big Sukkot dinner, so take advantage of both chances to make friends and enjoy dinner under the sky.
PJ Library has also asked NextDor members to read stories for the kids (they will supply the books). Send your RSVPs and questions to SacramentoPJLibrary@live.com.
On Saturday, NextDor unfolds its 3rd Annual Sukkot Extravaganza at a private home in East Sacramento on the edge of the Fab 40’s. There will be a havdallah and the traditional Sukkot blessings followed by a tasty potluck & lots of socializing under the beautifully decorated sukkah.
We request that each person bring a food dish or bottle of wine to share with the group. If you are interested in bringing a Sukkot-inspired dish, please check out http://itotd.com/articles/322/the-foods-of-sukkot/ for ideas. To receive the address of the event, please contact Patricia Leonard via email at email@example.com.
Lastly on Sunday, go Save the Deli! Have you read the book? If not, eat your way to deli heaven, and enjoy the manna falling from the skies, literally. That’s right, Congregation Beth Shalom is flying in deli and bakery from the likes of Katz’s in NYC and Cantor’s in L.A. for the 33rd Annual Sacramento Jewish Food Faire. And someone’s riding the 80 to hit up Saul’s in Berkeley. Head out to Carmichael between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. More details NextDor!
Blog NextDor about your favorite traditions or any of the experiences you host at your sukkah or activities from your synagogue. There’s a lot going on across the region.
And thanks for your support!
