Sukkot with BTBJ | 24 September 2021

On Friday evening I went to my new synagogue and it felt great to finally go in person. I’ve been attending services on Zoom for the past year. It also felt wonderful to meet the Rabbi face to face. He leaves in December and said he’s going to help me with my journey. The service was gorgeous and the reading for Sukkot really resonated with me. I’d like to share it:

After the service, the congregation and I had dinner in the Sukkah, or the canopy/tent. Didn’t get many photos, but I was able to get a selfie with the Bar Mitzvah boy, who made his bar mitzvah yesterday. Then I loved a teen gal’s hair and she gave me some tips for purple hair while staying professional. She loved my undercut too. Ate with the Rabbi and Val and it was so nice to meet them in person. 

This is my Synagogue! These are my people! I found my spiritual home.
