Sukkot = Harvest Fest = Music + Art + Pie + Love

Sydney Hausman-Cohen ’13 knows the math behind Sukkot:

Come celebrate Sukkot with a harvest festival! Bring: instruments (guitars, ukeles, drums, pots and pans…), flashlights, blankets/sleeping bags, any other art supplies, friends (Jewish and non-Jewish welcome!). We will bring: apple pie from Lyman orchards (yay local seasonal food!), guitar and lots of fun/silly music (and our beautiful voices), more sleeping bags, finger paint!

We’ll meet in the Sukkah! Or the Bayit if it rains. We might even sleep there. Who knows.

Discovah Thah Sukkah

An anonymous tip from Wesleyan’s Jewish Community:

I hope you will consider checking out Wesleyan’s award-winning Sukkah (a temporary shelter/hut built for the Jewish festival of Sukkot). Commissioned by the Wesleyan Jewish Community in 2008, the Sukkah was constructed by the students of Architecture Studio 2 and Professor Elijah Huge. The Sukkah is near the Art Library in the CFA and will be on site through Thursday, September 30th. Feel free to use the space to lounge and linger.
