Most Jewish people are not observing Sukkot (סֻכּוֹת) and Simchat Torah ( שִׂמְחַת תּוֹרָה). We could use innovative ideas to get the word about this holiday out. Here’s one possibility:
Sukkot is one of the 3 Biblical pilgrimage festivals/harvest festivals /Shalosh Regalim (שלוש רגלים.) This offers food connections. One of the observances is to say kiddush/קידוש over wine: this offers drink connections.
Perhaps a Sukkot event could be held at a restaurant on a main street, especially one with outdoor seating. One could set up an event there, and perhaps add poles and s’chach (סכך) to create a Sukkah-like area. In fact, with the restaurant’s Ok one may easily create a kosher sukkah – even if it only exists for the duration of one event.
This should be easy to set up, affordable – and will create a publicly visible area that might draw positive attention. Why should only Halloween and Xmas get all the holiday decorations? We have beauty in our own tradition.
