Pizza In The Hut Recap

Last Tuesday evening, CBS Family Preschool and Shabbat School families joined the rest of the Beth Sholom community in Koret Hall and the CBS sukkah on Eva Gunther Plaza for our annual Pizza in The Hut Sukkot community dinner.

Guests of all ages recited the Sukkot blessings and practiced shaking the lulav with Rabbi Glazer, and the many smaller attendees decorated harvest gourds, created bead and pipecleaner artworks, and had their faces painted and their limbs adorned with henna art. Wine, whiskey, water, and other beverages (not beginning with "w") complimented the various pizzas served, one of which was a fabulous Yukon gold potato pizza from the ever-popular Arizmendi Bakery. It was a wonderful family affair, with great energy and so many smiles. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate Sukkot under the s'chach!

Here, we've posted a selection of photographs taken during the festivities. You can also view more on our Facebook page.

Pizza In The Hut (Sukkot Community Dinner)

Sukkot starts this Wednesday evening and the Beth Sholom sukkah is currently being constructed on Eva Gunther Plaza. Time spent in the sukkah is an important aspect of Sukkot – it helps us appreciate the outdoors and annual agricultural cycles, and it gives us an opportunity to come together in community – family, friends, and strangers.

On Tuesday, October 10, at 5:30 p.m., the CBS Family Preschool and Shabbat School families will join the rest of the Beth Sholom community and friends as we gather in our sukkah for the annual community Sukkot dinner, Pizza in the Hut. We'll say the sukkah blessings, shake the lulav, smell the etrog, nosh on pizza, and have a grand ol' time! There will be activities aplenty for the kiddos, and salad, carrots and dip, and dessert will be served in addition to the delicious pizza. It's a BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverage) event, and beverages of all kinds are welcome. We'll sing, learn, laugh, and dine...then dine some more!

Register below! The regular price registration deadline is Monday, October 9. (Day-of walk-ins are welcome, but the prices for adults and children 6–12 increase by $5 each.)

Pizza In The Hut (Sukkot Community Dinner)

This year, we dubbed it Pizza in The Hut, and guests recited the Sukkot blessing, shook the lulav, got decorated in henna art, noshed on delicious vegetarian pizza from Arizmendi Bakery, and generally had a grand 'ol time. Here, we've posted a selection of photographs taken during the festivities, from the opening minutes to the day's last light (as it reflected off our rooftop solar panels).

If you missed last night's sukkah celebration, we invite you to join us for our upcoming Simchat Torah Block Party, this coming Monday, October 24, at 7 p.m.
