Bronx Jewish Center Community Event

As the seasons change from summer to fall and families spend more time inside, the Jewish community of the Bronx will celebrate the annual holiday of Sukkot by heading outdoors. Joining Jews around the world, Bronx’s Jewish community will be celebrating Sukkot, the Jewish festival of booths, from October 4 to October 11, in the park on the corner of Boston Road and Lydig Avenue, right outside the Bronx River entrance to the Bronx Zoo. “Drawing from the gravity of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Sukkot gives Jews all over the world the chance to celebrate the sweetness of nature and to thank G-d for His protection,” said Rabbi Saadia Pewzner, who will building the Sukkah. “Sukkot touches all five senses: the sweet smell of the etrog, the feel of the palm branch and twigs in your hand, the sights and sounds of the sukkah around us and the taste of the festival’s feasts.ALL are welcome to partake in this wonderful community event.

Building a sukkah is one of many Bronx Jewish Center’s holiday programs that offer Jews the opportunity to learn the significance of Jewish holiday rituals and perform them with their families. On Sunday, October 8, at 3:00 PM, the Bronx Jewish Center will be hosting a “Salads in the Sukkah” event to give everyone the opportunity to join together as one.. “Sukkot is a wonderful way for us to continue celebrating and connecting with our Judaism after the High Holidays.”
