Information on the Event
Sukkot is one of three Jewish pilgrimmage festivals (the other two are Pesach/Passover and Shavuot/Feast of Weeks). Sukkot is the plural of the word “sukkah” which means a temporary shelter in the outdoors, to protect one from sun, wind and light rain. When we speak of “sukkat shalom” we’re speaking of a shelter of peace. When we speak of “shalom bayit” we’re speking of peace in the home.
Our neighbors from St. Thomas Episcopal Church and Pilgrim Congregational Church join our observance of Sukkot as we erect and decorate a sukkah – thanks Tony and Lauren for lending it to us.
We are incorporating into the observance of Sukkot the themes of both Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness – with October being Domestiv Violence Awareness month.
Interfaith Sukkah Festival Sept 30 – If It Hurts, It’s Not Love is a PDF flyer about this event – for you and to share with friends.
This observance is how the interfaith social action initiative Common Ground: Christian and Jews Making a Difference is beginning it’s participation in the broader program If It Hurts, It’s Not Love.
