Because of this unique year, we will not be building a sukkah at the Takiff Center.
Instead… We are bringing a sukkah to you!

Join fellow Hakafa members from your neighborhood – masked and socially distanced, of course – on Sunday, September 26, as we travel throughout the North Shore with our pop-up sukkah. Come and shake the lulav and etrog.

Moadim l’simcha - make this Sukkot a festival of happiness and joy!

We will be in the driveways of the following members at the following times:

1:00 p.m.    Phil and Mimi Dray

Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai. Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of Tishrei, lasts seven days, and is marked by several distinct traditions. One tradition, which takes the commandment to "dwell in booths" literally, is to build a sukkah, a booth or hut. A sukkah is often erected by Jews during this festival, and it is common practice for some to eat and even live in these temporary dwellings during Sukkot.
