Description

Jews with Tools – Sukkah Raising/Razing

Sunday, September 23 from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM Raising
Sunday, September 30 from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Razing

Once again, the challenge…Construct the Sukkah!

If you can count past 10, and if you have ever managed to put a piece of IKEA furniture together, this will be a "walk in the park."

And we’ll also need men to drink the free coffee and eat the free donuts. You don’t have to have any particular construction skills, just be willing to join in the activity and have some fun. So, strap on your tool belt, grab your hammers, and join us on the front lawn of TRS for the annual Raising of the Sukkah. And
remember the great joy the kids get out of it!

If you have a cordless drill/screwdriver, a 6 ft. or so step ladder, or other family members who would like to help, especially with the greens and decorations, these would be very welcome.

Because this is the first time we've put up the Sukkah right "on" Sukkot I'd like to invite all the participants to bring a light lunch, something "natural" not fast food, like fruit, bread, cheese, etc. so that we can celebrate the raising of the Sukkah with the holiday. We'll sit and have lunch in the Sukkah and maybe reflect on how it reminds us of the meaning of Sukkot.

What goes up, must come down. And that is even true of a Sukkah. Now is your chance to take out all of your destructive tendencies in a constructive way, by tearing down the Sukkah and storing it for another year. (Candidly, this is easier than raising the Sukkah and a great social time as well!)
