Sukkot 2016

Sunday, Oct 16  / Rober H. Treman Upper Pavilion (map) / 11am-1pm

Dear Kol Haverim members and friends,

Please join us for our annual Sukkot celebration.  We will decorate the sukka and then have a short observance, followed by a picnic lunch.  After lunch, we will adventure for a hike in the gorge. Upper Treman park is about a 15-minute drive from downtown Ithaca, and an idyllic location for an Autumn gathering.

Kol Haverim will provide apples, challah, and cider.  We ask that you bring your own picnic lunch and something to share for dessert.  The event will be held rain or shine.  We will transform the spacious covered porch of the pavilion into our sukka.  There are plenty of tables outside as well as on the porch and inside the pavilion – but no heat, so please dress appropriately.

Please note that there will most likely be a $7 PARKING FEE per vehicle (unless you already have a state park permit).  If you would like to carpool,  the parking lot of Home Depot is a convenient location to meet up.

RSVP appreciated to

A note on decorations: Because will be celebrating in a state park, the cutting of living plants is discouraged.  Participants are encouraged to bring something from home to help decorate the sukka.  If each person or family brings a small item of personal significance to hang on one wall of the sukka it would be a nice conversation piece.  And/or you may bring some clippings, paper loop chains, or other decorations.
