Thanks for celebrating Sukkot with us this year! Here are some of our favorite memories – don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to learn about our next celebration!

 

Sunday, September 23, Thursday, September 27 & Sunday, September 30

Did you know that each year on Sukkot, Jewish people all over the world build temporary shelters called Sukkahs and welcome friends and neighbors to join them inside for meals and festivities? This year, we welcome you to join us as we celebrate Sukkot with book readings, music, food, and more! Take a walk through our rooftop Sukkah to learn all about the holiday’s origins and how people celebrate today in Brooklyn and around the world! BCM is proud to present our Sukkot celebration in partnership with PJ Library.
