Space is limited. Register in advance!

Sukkot, the annual harvest festival, asks us to hone our collective creativity, cooperation and resilience in building the sukkah, a symbolic temporary structure. Join us for a new spin on this Jewish holiday as we combine tradition with tactical urbanism, urban ag and architecture. After a short panel on process and collaboration, we will gather for a wine reception under a contemporary sukkah built for the occasion in Annie Alley.

Co-presented by the JCCSF.
