Open to the Sky: The Beacon Sukkah Project

Wednesday, October 4

Polhill Park/Beacon Visitors Center
South Avenue & Main Streets

Ongoing through Thursday, October 12

Open to the Sky is a collaborative effort between Beacon Hebrew Alliance and Beacon Arts, to invite everyone to explore and celebrate Sukkot (pronounced sue-coat).

A sukkah is a house that gives no shelter, a house that parodies the idea of security. It’s a Jewish sand mandala of a building, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest and then dismantled. It’s rickety and tenuous, creating the illusion of permanence and highlighting the impermanence of everything. Ongoing through Thursday, October 12 | (more info)
