How We Gather: The Vassar Sukkah Project

LocationLibrary Lawn

A sukkah is a Jewish sketch of a dwelling, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest of Sukkot (pronounced sue-coat) and then dismantled. In these pop-up shelters, all are invited to gather to celebrate the harvest, remember the parts of our lives that are transitory, and celebrate community. Sponsored by Religious and Spiritual Life and Contemplative Practices, in partnership with Vassar Jewish Union and Chabad Jewish Community.
