Sukkah Sleepover

By Sharon Bleviss

On a warm Friday night, seven brave souls slept in the B’nai Emunah sukkah. The weather was perfect for dinner (kosher Chinese) in the hut, followed by study with wine. The group discussed the holiday, its commandment to be happy even in the face of sorrow, and Ecclesiastes. The perfect temperature beckoned some to the beach, and an hour-long walk at midnight followed. Sometime in the middle of the night, before the streetcar sounds began anew, the weather changed and the fog whipped through the structure, but the warm sleeping bags kept the snoozers cozy. All enjoyed a warm breakfast in the morning and put themselves together just in time for Shabbat services.

Join us next year in the sukkah!

    Sure thing! Unfortunately we couldn’t be there that day because we celebrated Joshua’s birthday, but I heard it was really great this year.
