Sukkot 2016

The festival of Sukkot is a time for relaxation and celebration in the humble Sukkah.  During Sukkot we pause to enjoy the harvest of our inner work during the High Holydays, and to reflect on the beauty and transience of our journey through this world. Visit our Sukkah during office hours (Tuesday – Friday from 1:00 – 6:00) or by arrangement with the office.
