Nothing says “fall” like sitting under your sukkah with your loved ones and enjoying a beautiful evening. Last week, Federation celebrated Sukkot in a variety of ways, including through Gather Grants and our social media sukkah competition!
Gather Grants are a joint initiative of three Federation Programs: Making Jewish Places, Next Gen and PJ Library Atlanta. Gather Grants award microgrants of $180 to individuals in the Atlanta metro area who are hosting gatherings in their community.
Here’s what a few people who attended Gather Grant events had to say:
“This event was very meaningful and memorable, not only did I have fun, but I also learned more about the holiday. What a beautiful event!”
“It was creative and everyone enjoyed interacting. New connections were made and it was a wonderful atmosphere in the sukkah. The hostess was well prepared with supplies and encouraged and interacted with all the participants who were of varied ages. Everyone young and old enjoyed.”
“I watched my son teach his friend how to shake the lulav. We don’t have a sukkah at home, so I had no idea he knew how! My heart is full.”
We also asked our Federation Family to send in pictures of your fall festivities for our Sukkah Competition, and you delivered. Here are our three favorites. We loved seeing the beautiful and creative sukkahs of Jewish Atlanta!
