UPDATE! Sukkot celebration moved to Springside Chestnut Hill

Due to the rainy weather forecast, our annual Folkshul Community Sukkot Celebration will take place indoors on Sunday morning, at our usual location at Springside-Chestnut Hill Academy. Please note that this event begins at 10:30 AM, instead of our usual 10:00, to give our teachers and assistants enough time to set up the activities for all to enjoy. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! 

Join the Folkshul Community for an all-ages program filled with music, arts & crafts activities, and outdoor fun. Come meet and welcome our newest Folkshul members!
