Thank you for coming up to Congregation Ohr Tzafon yesterday and participating in our Community Sukkot Session! Thank you and your children for being excellent guests, and of course, thank you to Ohr Tzafon for hosting a beautiful day. It was an expression of true community, and I loved shaking the lulav and etrog with so many of our students. And we certainly left the COT sukkah much more colorful than when we arrived with many beautiful paper chain decorations and birds! Below are some pictures, and you can find more on our shared album here. Plus, I've attached the sheets I used for the sukkah and lulav blessings, and the symbolic meaning of the parts of the lulav if you would like for your own homes. Though, we'll have the chance to do this again Saturday night and Sunday at TNS -
And Sukkot isn't even nearly over! We have a whole TNS weekend ahead of us with Rabbi Sammy Rosenbaum returning for Family Service, a Sukkot Potluck and Havdalah, and a Sukkot Sunday service. So please plan to come for the following:
