Sukkot at BeLoved
Join us for an evening with BeLoved celebrating Sukkot and learning ways in which Sukkot points us to affordable housing for all! We will take this opportunity to "build" a sukkah (a temporary structure in which Jews have traditionally slept, ate, gathered and found shelter and protection during Sukkot) in BeLoved's Village. The Village is the construction site of 12 microhomes designed for our neighbors who’ve struggled with housing insecurity. What better way to celebrate this traditional harvest festival of thanksgiving than by connecting this ancient tradition to our current struggles with homelessness and affordable housing in Buncombe County and taking action?!
Folks are invited to come for part or all of the day/evening! You can contribute to the construction of the houses during the day, come at 5 pm to help build the sukkah and/or join us at 6 pm to hear Rev. Amy Cantrell, a powerful speaker, an inspirational advocate and a humble creator of community where we all take care of each other. CJJ is thrilled to partner with BeLoved - check out their website!
