WELCOME HOME

We are a Reform Jewish community where you will be warmly welcomed and accepted.
We’re married and single, with and without children, toddlers and great-grandparents, straight and LGBTQ, seasoned Jews, interfaith, and folks who are beginning to connect with Reform Judaism.

SUKKOT

Drive By Sukkah

 

Traditionally, we celebrate Sukkot together with ushpizin in mind, welcoming guests. 

Sukkot is associated with hospitality and sharing our sukkah with our friends, family, and the community. This year, we are switching things up! 

 

You are invited to drive through the parking lot at our first ever Drive-By Sukkah during the week of Sukkot: October 5 – 9.

Call the office to let us know you are here and we will bring you out the Lulav & Etrog.

Come and see the Lulav and Etrog. Come see our Sukkah—add a family picture to our decorations.

This is a great opportunity to bring back your Makhzorim (prayer books).

Also, please remember to bring food to donate for SICM food pantry (Schenectady Inner City Mission).

Please note, space is limited and this is a socially distanced event: one family in the sukkah at a time.

Please remain in your car until the sukkah is empty. Everyone attending must wear a mask at all times. Please be conscious of time if other families are waiting.

 

 

Sukkot and Housing Insecurity: Text and Art

A special Lunch and Learn with Arnie Rotenberg

Thursday, October 8 at Noon

Bring your lunch and join us virtually in the Sukkah

 

 

Homelessness is the theme par excellence of Sukkot. We don’t just talk about the lack of a roof above our heads, we experience it; we don’t fear the lack of attachment to solid walls, we celebrate it; we embrace the fragility of homelessness by praying for rain, precisely as we sit out in the open at the mercy of the elements. And yet, the holiday of homelessness is precisely the one that can make us feel better about our current alienation.
