Shabbat Shalom! Chag Sameach! Sukkat has commenced and Friday night was a lot of fun. It was great catching up with Jonathan and Sasha. It was also nice meeting new people, especially one aspiring Opera singer named Sarah. It was a windy day and Jonathan, along with Sasha, Ben, and Alex had trouble pitching the Sukkah. For Sukkah, you’re supposed to sit in a shelter outside. Earlier that day, the Sukkah blew away. Eventually, they realized they can’t pitch a tent in cement, so the guys held the Sukkah and Sasha asked if I would take a photo of him in it. I did.
As they were setting up the Sukkah, we were hungry. We said the Hamtozi, they cut the Challah and I had my gluten-free bread. After the guys gave up on the Sukkah, there was a lot of laughter over Uzbeki food, red wine, grape juice, and s’mores. A chilly October evening to remember.
