Sukkot & Simchat Torah at Havurah

We have a lively Sukkot and Simchat Torah planned at Havurah this year!

Sukkah Decorating on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 6:30 pm - Please join us at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 3, to decorate our new sukkah. Bring your own artwork to add to the walls if you wish! If you can join in the decorating adventure, please RSVP here.

Our new, bigger sukkah represents a significant gift of design and construction time from Tivnu, an award-winning nonprofit led by Havurah member Steven Eisenbach-Budner. Check out these photos of Tivnu students hard at work in our courtyard during the past two weeks.
