Sukkah B’Makom literally means “Shelter in Place” – and in Hebrew, it has the beautiful resonances of the joy, fragility and shelter of the Sukkah, and the holiness “Makom” – one of our many names for G-d. 

All of our gatherings, services and community meetings have gone virtual through Zoom, the free video chatting software.
