Come have brunch, and build the structure of the community Succah at Rabbi Barclay’s home. We will be bringing out the wood and building the basic framework (the entire succah with fronds cannot be built until after Yom Kippur), and sharing light food, coffee, and laughs…
If you have your own electric drill, please bring it to make things go quicker; but most importantly, please come celebrate the preparation for this happiest of holidays as we start building the Succah!
Talmud & Tobacco:
The Hidden Secrets of Sukkot: Manifesting Your Dreams of Love, Success and Even Children Through Observance of the “Holiday of Our Happiness”
Learn how to manifest the deepest dreams of your soul into physical reality through a more full understanding of this powerful holiday…the only holiday in which we are commanded by God to be happy! We will study ancient texts together and learn how our Sages used Sukkot to create daily miracles in their lives.
This class is only open to those over the age of 21. As always, cigars will be provided by the TNS Men’s Club, but for this one event, we ask people to consider bringing fine spirits to share as we enjoy the studying under the shade of the Succah. As always, this class is open to everyone: make and female, smoker and non smoker (there is a non-smoking section in the Succah).
Men’s Club and Sisters of Simcha Pot Luck Sukkot Shabbat Brunch
Meet the members of the temple auxiliary groups, and learn about what they are doing as we come together for a delicious potluck breakfast. The Barclay kitchen will be available for any preparation needs, so come enjoy Shabbat morning with old friends, new friends, and a terrific meal in the Succah.
Please bring dairy/pareve dishes to share with others.
It’s time for the annual Hookah in the Succah! This event, developed originally by Rabbi Barclay years ago, has been copied by synagogues all over the country…so come experience the original! Celebrate Havdalah and Sukkot with multiple hookahs (water pipes filled with flavored tobacco from the Middle East) as we learn about the holiday and experience the same sense of community in this holiday that our ancestors did thousands of years ago in Israel.
The evening is only for those 18 and older, as there will have tobacco smoke; and cigars will also be provided. Feel free to bring fine spirits of your choice to share, and be prepared for a wonderful evening of camaraderie.
