Sukkot Soon!

The Sukkot Festival starts this Wednesday evening, October 12th, and at Congregation Adas Emuno, we will celebrate with a pot luck dinner at 6:30 PM in the social hall, followed by our Sukkot service in the sanctuary at 7:30 PM.

We will also join in on a collaborative Sukkot Morning service with our sister shuls in Bergen Country, Temple Sinai and Temple Emeth, on October 13th. This service will be hosted by Temple Emeth, 1666 Windsor Road in Teaneck, at 10:30 AM, with Rabbi Schwartz and Student Cantor Hawley participating.

And don't forget about our Super Sukkot Sunday coming up on October 16th at 12 noon!

And now, to get in the mood, here is a video called, Sukkot Fun - Strange Sukkahs!

The video is courtesy of Rebbetzin Tap, and here is her write up from YouTube:

A 32ft tall Sukkah? Sukkah on a boat? On a camel? See them for real in this video clip! Filmed at the Sukkah exhibit at Neot Kedumim, the Biblical nature reserve in Israel, which features the many unusual Sukkahs described in the Mishna - some of which are "kosher" and some not.

This clip is from our "Jewish Holiday Celebration!" DVD. In the DVD, Rebbetzin Tap (Kerry Bar-Cohn) discovers a holiday apartment - with a different Jewish holiday behind every door! The shots of singing and dancing toward the beginning of this clip are a preview of the song "Shake The Lulav", which you can see in full on the DVD, available in Judaica stores or by visiting http://www.rebbetzintap.com.

Also, visit Neot Kedumim (located between Jerusalem & Tel Aviv) and see these Sukkahs and more for yourself! It's a great exhibit. Go to http://www.neot-kedumim.org.il for more info.

Thank you very much, Rebbetzin, and we'll be sure to shake our lulav on Wednesday night!
