Sukkot Social Justice Jamboree

Justice Songs, Tikkun Olam Teachings, Community Action

Come learn about what our social justice community has been up to. As Jewish social change agents, especially in these difficult times, we need to meet each other face to face, eat and sing together, and build a loving, personal community. Cantor Sarah will lead us in song and Rabbis Sam, Val, and Jason will share brief teachings. We will hear from members in our community who have been actively involved with our HIAS Welcome Campaign and the Carroll Gardens Fair Care Campaign. Come connect with other social justice committee members. RSVP to join.

Open Your Sukkah This Sukkot

Consider opening your Sukkah to Kane Street community members this year by participating as a host in our annual Sukkah Hop. This year’s Sukkah Hop will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2:00-4:00pm. Hosts have regularly offered desserts and other goodies for visitors.

This is a terrific chance to get to know fellow congregants by either hosting them in your sukkah or visiting other others’ sukkot by taking a lovely stroll through our surrounding neighborhoods.

Contact Rabbi Jason Gitlin if you are interested in serving as a Sukkah Hop host.
