Harlem Havruta invites everyone to share a Community meal on Sunday, October 1, at 12 pm in/around the Sukkah! with Rabbi Mira Rivera & Dr. Renee Hill
The festival of Sukkot begins 5 days after Yom Kippur. Sukkot is named after the booths or huts (sukkot in Hebrew) wherein Jewish people slept, ate, and welcomed guests during this week-long celebration. According to rabbinic tradition, these flimsy booths represent the huts in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after escaping from slavery in Egypt. The festival of Sukkot is one of the three great pilgrimage festivals of the Jewish year. more information here.
the Sukkah will be open each day from 9 am to 9 pm for community members to sit, pray, and eat, until Sunday, October 8.

Garage Dance Ensemble
US Tour Debut
at St. Mary's!
Krummelpap, Scandals Wrapped in Prayer (Krummelpap, Afval en Sunlightseepbaddens) is a dance-theater piece created and performed by Garage Dance Ensemble, which makes its home in a former mining area in the Namaqualand region of South Africa, not far from the border with Namibia.
Set in a specific place and time about a particular brown community geographically far from our own lands, Krummelpap is a devised work of raw emotion and dark humor. It unfolds universal stories of young people reckoning with the past and confronting conditions of the present to self-define and celebrate who they are and who they would like to be.
Thank you to Jonathan Secor for connecting us to this wonderful opportunity.
A few tickets are available to the St. Mary's community for the performance on Tuesday, October 3, at 7 pm, on a first come-first serve basis. Email the Rector.
