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.

POC Shabbat
August 14, 2020, 5:30pm-6:45pm

Beloved community, it is time to slow down, embody self-care and feel the liberation of stepping into this special time of the week. We’ll light the candles together to invoke our time of rest.  Please feel free to bring ritual items if so moved and share elements of your own practice as we deepen connection and community.
This space is for us, created by us. Please contact Ruthie Levin, POC Organizer, if you would like to co-lead, lead, or contribute.
