Sukkot 2017

Join Romemu for the harvest holiday of Sukkot! We have a variety of activities, services, programs, and meals planned for the community. Please see below for a schedule of events and registration information. 

Sukkot is a joyous Fall harvest festival in which we re-experience the Israelites journey through the wilderness by eating and dwelling in a sukkah, a temporary structure that is open to the stars. Adults are welcome to join us in helping to build the sukkah for theRomemu community. 

When enjoying the sukkah, please provide your own refreshments and utensils, and remember to leave the sacred space more lovely than you found it! 



All services will take place at West End Presbyterian Church, located at 165 West 105th Street
