9/30: Sukkah Raising and Fall Harvest Celebration

Posted By on Mon, Sep 28, 2009 at 8:00 AM

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage (2929 Richmond Rd., 216.593.0575) combines ancient tradition with contemporary environmental concerns at its Sukkah Raising and Fall Harvest Celebration happening from 4-6 p.m. today. The festival of sukkot honors the years Jewish people wandered in the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. During the seven days, the devout live in a homemade hut called a sukkah. Guests are invited to help raise and decorate a sukkah booth and enjoy fall fruits, cider and other refreshments. The modern twist: There’ll be “eco-kosher” proponents promoting healthy food choices and sustainable agriculture. It’s free and open to the public — Jewish or not — and takes place on the lawn next to the museum. — Anastasia Pantsios
