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. Please note this page is updated each Monday with the week’s services, events and meetings. Please see the Kehilla calendar for events by month.

All of our gatherings, services and community meetings have gone virtual through Zoom – download the latest version here.
