PJ Library Raise the Roof - Newton

Celebrate Sukkot! During the harvest festival of Sukkot, all are welcome into a temporary shelter or hut called a Sukkah that was used by farmers when harvesting their crops before the winter rains in ancient times.

Enjoy an afternoon creating an art project to decorate our community sukkah, shaking up some homemade lemon-lime sorbet, sipping fall beverages (for the parents), dancing with music from around the world and supporting children experiencing food insecurity. We will also welcome award-winning local author Laya Steinberg as she reads her PJ Library book "The Best Sukkot Pumpkin Ever," signs books and answers questions.

Let's raise the roof and celebrate together through the sharing of food and joy with our whole community.
