We will be building a community sukkah for Dor Hadash families. We will be using local materials for the sukkah structure, decorations, and for a lulav and etrog. We will also be tasting locally grown fruits and vegetables in our sukkot celebration. This will be a great way to observe the holiday and also explore and support our local food ecosystem in an interactive and delicious way. It would be great if we can get our food from a Detroit farm and have a farmer there to share information about the produce, the farming process, and what it's like to grow food in Detroit. The sukkah will be designed and built by a group of parent volunteers on the property of one of our parent/educators. The kids in our program will use gourds and other things from the farmer's market, as well as utilize recycled/upcycled materials for festive decorations. This will provide a great opportunity to talk about and practice sustainability in a creative way. We will have a program on October 9 to teach about the holiday. During Sukkot, it will be open for members of Dor Hadash and guests to strengthen our community, Jewish identity, and connection to the environment as we gather, eat, and celebrate together.
