Jewish Foundation for Group Homes Sukkah-Building and Holiday Visits
Sukkah building and decorating at JFGH homes will take place during the week leading up to Sukkot. Homes are located in Gaithersburg, Potomac, Rockville, Silver Spring MD, Annandale and Reston VA. Deconstruction will be on Sunday, October 14 or any day after that is convenient for volunteers. We will be building 10 or 12 Sukkot. You are also encouraged to invite one or more residents into your home for a Holiday dinner or lunch, and to come to one of our homes for a Sukkot meal and/or lead residents in the blessings over the lulav and etrog as well as to invite one or more residents into your home for a Holiday dinner or lunch or visit us at other times during the Holidays.
These are all family-friendly & wonderful Mitzvahs! For more information, call 1-888-246-1818, or email.
