how we gather
the Vassar Sukkah Project
It's a Jewish sketch of a dwelling, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest and then dismantled.
In these pop-up shelters, all are invited to gather to celebrate the harvest, remember the parts of our lives that are transitory, and delight in the joy of being together.
Sukkot (pronounced sue-coat) is the name of both the ephemeral houses and the holiday during which they are used.
For the week that How We Gather is up, there will be events, classes, and workshops open to all. Check out our full calendar of events and come visit!
