Sukkah City – Coming to Baltimore!

Celebrate the harvest festival of sukkot at this musical evening on the fields of the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC. Experience an array of different Sukkot hosted by friends, organizations, synagogues and business partners. Bring your own picnic dinner to eat in our Sukkah City and enjoy sukkah inspired treats from beer to sundaes. It’s friends, family, festival, live music, food and fun.  It’s community. It’s Sukkah City!

A sukkah is a man-made hut used as a makeshift living and dining area during Sukkot.

For Sukkah City, at least a dozen organizations will be building sukkot in the same proximity at the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC, to allow the entire community to experience the multiplicity of themes and ways one may celebrate this beautiful harvest holiday.

Join us -- Thursday, September 27, 2018, from 5:00-9:00pm

Rabbi Jessy Gross of the JCC of Greater Baltimore says, “Sukkah City will be the quintessential coming-together and celebration of the hard work, joy and interdependency of all the little pockets that make up the Jewish community.” 

“The extremely busy period surrounding the Jewish High Holidays requires heavy-lifting in both the physical and spiritual sense. This time is recognized as the ‘Season of Our Joy,’ a time, in ancient Israel, when artisans pulled together and divided the fruits of their hard labor among one another as sustenance for the long winter months ahead.”

Sukkah City building organizations and participants include:

The Max Family
PJ Our Way (of The Macks Center for Jewish Education)
Pearlstone
Charm City Bluegrass Festival
Arnie Wallenstein, Randi Benesch and friends
Sensory Sukkah by Sara Rubinstein and friends

We hope to see you September 27!
