Groundbreaking

This ceremonial groundbreaking includes music, song and of course shovels! Groundbreaking activities for pre-K and grades K-2 will take place inside the building.The celebration precedes our Sukkot activities, dinner and services. Shovel away then stay for Sukkot! Let us know if you are planning to attend the groundbreaking. Registration for the groundbreaking is with Sukkot - it's just so easy this way! One is not a requirement of the other.

Sukkot

“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven…a time to plant and a time to harvest.” (Ecclesiastes read on Shabbat during Sukkot)


Sukkot is a time of harvest. We spend a week dwelling in our temporary shelter, sharing meals and time together. This year, we till the earth to sow seeds for our future permanent dwelling. Join us for the groundbreaking for our expanded sacred home! It’s going to be quite the party!

On the menu this year:

  • A delicious offering of soups: Beef Stew (GF), Chicken Tortilla Soup (GF) and Vegetarian Chili (GF)
  • Autumn Salad with Mixed Greens, Apples & Roasted Butternut Squash
  • Mac’n’Cheese (for the littles)
  • Bread (including gluten-free option)
  • Desserts (including gluten-free option)
  • Autumn Ales and Cinnamon Sangria and non-alcoholic beverages as well!

Please share in a small act of tzedakah by bringing a bag of apples for donation to Food for Others! The Rodef Reads committee will collect the apples at the event and deliver them to the Food for Others for distribution to local families in need.
