A Sukkah of Love: A Creative Harvest – LGBTQ+ Intergenerational Celebration
September 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Sukkah is compared to a chuppah – a canopy of love, connection and joy! Join with our partners, the Danforth Jewish Circle, LGBTQ+ at the J, Moishe House, and Alex Richler at this Queer-Centred, Welcoming-to-All evening, as we engage queer-hearted and queer-minded ways of celebrating and re-imagining this festival of abundant harvest, love and creativity, and welcoming in Ushpizin – spiritual ancestors, guests and each other. This 6th night of Sukkot is connected with the sefirah/spiritual quality of Yesod – the quality of connection, intimacy and devotion. You are encouraged to bring a poem, song, spoken word piece or other jewcy, creative offering in some way connected to this quality. Bring a picture or creative representation of a queer ancestor who embodies this quality in some way to hang in the Sukkah. We’ll mark the end of Shabbat with a brief Havdalah ritual.
This is a welcoming and inclusive, intersectional space, welcoming folks of all ethnicities, races, denominations, genders + gender presentation, sexual orientations, abilities, Jewish backgrounds, English speaking ability, Hebrew speaking ability, and knowledge levels. This event is a celebration of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and the ritual of Shabbat and we ask that folks respect others’ choices in celebration/observance. Please note that this event is in English, with some Hebrew. If you have any questions, concerns, or access needs, please email email@example.com or reach out via messenger to the hosts.
