Healing Service for First night Sukkot with Cantor Ida Rae Cahana
Monday, September 20, 5:00 PM
CBI Sukkah/Temple Lawn

Sukkot is a time of welcoming, which can be difficult when we feel broken. Healing can begin when we connect with others. The Sukkot custom is to invite ancestral guests, “ushpizin,” into our Sukkah. We welcome all those with whom we wish we could sit in the Sukkah as we welcome each other for an hour of song and spiritual uplift. Please register below.
