As we celebrate the holiday of sukkot, we are reminded that many people in our community lack shelter and food.
This year the Eastside Jewish Commons is holding a sukkot open house event each night of the holiday (October 13-20). Each night one or more eastside families will open their sukkot to the community for a potluck dinner, along with a discussion or activity related to the needs for affordable housing and food security.
The discussions will be led by community partner organizations, including B’nai Brith Camp/BBYO, Congregation Havurah Shalom, Congregation Neveh Shalom, Congregation Shaarie Torah, Congregation Shir Tikvah, Jewish Child and Family Services, Oregon NCSY, Oregon Jewish Community Foundation Giving Council, and Tree of Life Montessori.
Thank you to the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and Oregon Jewish Community Foundation’s Giving Council for support of this program.
The schedule is as follows (in the interest of security, event addresses are kept private until you RSVP):
