Celebrate Sukkot with us in our congregational sukkah.

Sukkot Celebration

Sunday, October 11
Outside at North Shore Unitarian Church
2100 Half Day Road, Deerfield
4:00-5:00pm Sukkot Service
5:00-6:00pm Picnic Dinner (Bring Your Own)

Celebrate fall by joining us for our all-ages event near our Sukkah to celebrate Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Sukkot is the fall Jewish harvest holiday, and Simchat Torah is a celebration of Jewish learning and our oldest book. We will be observing Covid health protocols (outdoors, masks, sanitizing, no shared materials, etc.) Rabbi Adam Chalom will lead a brief service, including lulav branches, etrog fruit and Torah scroll “show and tell.”

We will provide an individually packed craft activity for children to create and place in the Sukkah or take home. Bring your own picnic for your family along with chairs or blankets to sit around our sukkah.

Also be sure to help us with our Simchat Torah Children’s Book Drive by bringing your new or gently used children’s books to donate to Bernie’s Book Bank! 

All Kol Hadash members, friends and guests are welcome at our celebration! This is a fun event for Sunday School families and non-school families to gather together! We invite everyone to join us.

To register or for more information, please contact our administrator, Jeremy Owens, at, or 847/383-5184.
