Southside Sukkot
Oct 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Chicagoland Jewish organizations for an evening of social justice in a sukkah. Sukkot is a harvest festival commemorating the memory of the Israelites seeking shelter in temporary huts while wandering in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt. Together, we will gather in a sukkah (temporary hut or booth) where we will enjoy food, learning and community.

Our evening will be centered around the “Bring Chicago Home,” an initiative aimed at ending homelessness in Chicago.

KAMII, 18 Doors, JCUA, Keshet for LGBTQ+ Equality, Moishe House, and Repair the World are excited to have you join us! Teachers from these partner organizations will share what Judaism can teach us about committing to tikkun olam, repairing the world.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Please note that KAM Isaiah Israel expects that all event participants are fully vaccinated and encourages that they wear a well fitting mask for everyone’s safety, particularly those who are immunocompromised or considered to be at high risk. If you are not feeling well on the night of the event, we ask that you stay home.
