Share Your Fall Harvest With Emanu-El!

Yom Kippur (Saturday, October 4)

Help us decorate our Temple and Sukkah for Sukkot! We are looking for pumpkins, gourds, squash apples, and citrus fruit to help celebrate the biggest Jewish Harvest festival of the year. Crates will be available on Yom Kippur day by the fountain in the courtyard.
