The Sukkah is compared to a chuppah – a canopy of love, connection and joy! Join with our partners, the Danforth Jewish Circle, LGBTQ+ at the J and Alex Richler at this Queer-Centred, Welcoming-to-All evening, as we engage queer-hearted and queer-minded ways of celebrating and re-imagining this festival of abundant harvest, love and creativity, and welcoming in Ushpizin – spiritual ancestors, guests and each other. This 6th night of Sukkot is connected with the sefirah/spiritual quality of Yesod – the quality of connection, intimacy and devotion.
You are encouraged to bring a poem, song, spoken word piece or other jewcy, creative offering in some way connected to this quality. Bring a picture or creative representation of a queer ancestor who embodies this quality in some way to hang in the Sukkah. We’ll mark the end of Shabbat with a brief Havdalah ritual.
