Families and teen volunteers celebrated Sukkot in style with bubbles, sushi, videos, games, and more.
Bubbles, Young Adults, and Presidents
Bubbles took center stage at the Friendship Circle family event at the Orbach Sukkah. In addition to being treated to dinner and the chance to shake a lulav and etrog, kids enjoyed a bubble show, while their parents had conversation under the stars.
Nearby at the Grossbaum sukkah, over 50 Friendship Circle presidents were treated to sushi, games, even an inspirational video. (Yes, with a makeshift video theater to boot!)
Meanwhile, at the Rosenblum sukkah, young adults 21+ gathered for delicious treats and time to socialize together.
Those who can’t visit at someone else’s sukkah, enjoyed a portable sukkah brought to local retirement and assisted living facilities. Seniors living at The Pointe, Brandywine, and Inglemoor enjoyed a short program about Sukkot, a chance to say blessings and sit in a portable sukkah, and to shake a lulav and etrog.
“Sukkot gives us so many opportunities to share blessings and do mitzvot, to consider the fragility of our lives and also the happiness we can bring one another,” said Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum. “It’s so amazing to be able to spend these days increasing joy across the community.”
