Contemporary Jewish Museum presents:

Sukkah Studio

Oct 5-10, 11am-5pm each day, San Francisco


Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. It also commemorates the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert. It is marked by several distinct traditions, one of which-erecting a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut-takes the commandment to dwell in booths literally. Sukkot are commonly used during the seven-day festival for eating, entertaining, and even for sleeping.

Inspired by this tradition of a temporary space for gathering and welcoming guests, The Contemporary Jewish Museum is building a special sukkah in its lobby for congregating and community building and inviting six local artists to inhabit it as an open studio for a day each. Artists will share their practice with visitors and work with interested visitors to make something together.
