Camp Shabbat in the Sukkah
Friday, October 18, 6:30 pm
Join Rabbi Hannah as she leads us in a special Kabbalat Shabbat service in the Sukkah--families and kids welcome! This Shabbat will be themed around camp, so bring camp songs and stories to share! Before the service, you can join Rabbi Hannah for pizza, blessings, and the Dinosaur Song at 6:00 (RSVP here for that); and there will be a potluck dinner after the service. 



Simchat Torah Celebration
Sunday, October 20, 5:30 pm
To celebrate Simchat Torah we’ll unscroll the entire Torah, finish reading it, and start it over again. We'll celebrate our kindergartners as they begin their formal Judaic education, and dance through the streets with our scrolls. We will need all hands on deck to fully unroll the Torah; it’s a wonderful thing to see for folks of all ages, so don’t miss it.
We'll start with pizza at 5:30 followed by a service beginning at 6:00. We will then march to the Capitol with our Torahs, take a look at the whole Torah at once as we finish reading it and begin it again, and enjoy dessert together.
