Sukkot Festive Shabbat
and Harvest Dinner
Friday, October 10

On Friday night, October 10, at the height of Vermont's leaf-peeping season, JCOGS will celebrate the joyous, week-long holiday of Sukkot.

During Sukkot it is customary to hold as many of your activities in the sukkah as possible. In that spirit, JCOGS' Friday night Shabbat service will find us sitting in our delightfully-decorated sukkah under the stars and moonlit Stowe sky to share prayers and songs led by Rabbi David.

A delicious Sukkot harvest Shabbat dinner catered by Rachel Jacobs of Vermont Kosher will follow, with more music, singing, dancing and good times to be shared. Please plan to spend this Sukkot holiday evening together with JCOGS.

All are welcome. The cost of the dinner is $22 per adult and $5 per child. Be sure to make your reservations for this popular, annual JCOGS event.

Reserve here online!
