Due to wet conditions at Fort Washington State Park and chilly, windy weather expected, Folkshul’s Sukkot Celebration will be held tomorrow INDOORS at Springside, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Please note that this event starts slightly later than a regular Folkshul day.


We will still have loads of fun crafts and activities, our community sukkah in which to gather, sing, and celebrate, and a sustainability project for adults and older students led by our social action committee. Please still plan to bring items from the attached list of recyclables, and if you like, bring a snack for your family to enjoy before we go into the auditorium at 11:30.


Looking forward to gathering together and welcoming our new families inside our sukkah tomorrow!
