By the 6th night of Sukkot, Wandering Sukkah will be dyed and decorated, festooned with branches, drawn upon, and built and rebuilt by many hands. Join us as we construct it one final time on the rooftop of Nolita Minyan and add one last pop of color to the structure. After the workshop join Nolita Minyan for a Kabbalat Shabbat service and Shabbat dinner. Please RSVP at the link below for address and full event details.

Wandering Sukkah is a mobile ritual that evolves in form, function, and color over the weeklong holiday of Sukkot. As the sukkah travels by bicycle caravan around Brooklyn it will evolve and change, as  natural materials are woven into its mesh roof,  fabric walls are dyed with natural pigments, and it expands to fit an ice cream social, a shabbat dinner, and an evening of storytelling and song. Designed by Max Goldner and Ethan Blake (lowercase jews), Wandering Sukkah is a simple structure that transforms into a record of community and placemaking.

Wandering Sukkah is presented by The Neighborhood in collaboration with lowercase jews, Kane Street Synagogue, Romemu Brooklyn, and Nolita Minyan.
