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.

Hi, Jessica Marie!
Thanks for filling us in on the Friday night Sukkat event you attended, dear friend! The function gave you a chance to reconnect with friends Jonathan and Sasha and to meet an interesting new friend in Sarah, an aspiring opera diva. I’m sorry it was too windy to properly pitch a tent, but you all adjusted to the conditions and proceeded to have a good time with friendship, food and prayer. It’s hard to believe you guys needed to bundle up in coats and jackets and seek the warmth of the fire. Down here it is still stifling hot all night long.
Thank you for taking me along on another step in your journey through Sukkot 2020. Have a wonderful week, dear friend JM!
