Sukkah Hop

Sukkot Tailgate - Sunday, September 26, 2021 


Sukkot is the festival of hospitality, but it’s also the epitome of a Midwesterner’s good time. Sukkot encourages all the best things about camping and tailgating, two recreational activities we excel at. The festival of Sukkot commands us to spend as much time as possible in this makeshift home that allows us to experience the elements of the outdoors - we can eat, hang out, and even sleep in the sukkah. We are also commanded to welcome our neighbors and friends into our Sukkah.


Join us for a Midwestern Sukkot tailgate at Akiba-Schechter to relax in the Sukkah, play lawn games, enjoy grilled cheese and tater tots from the infamous Cheesie's food truck, and sip beer thanks to our friends at Histrionic Brewlab. Bring friends and family, and take a moment to slow down, appreciate the joy of being together, and embrace the spirit of hospitality and generosity that Sukkot teaches us. No sports games, tickets, TVs, or tents required for this celebration of fall!


Please register for this event.
