As in years past, I spent many activities with Long Beach Hillel for the holiday of Sukkot, enriching its programs and its students.  Beginning with leading a Beach Hillel staff learning session on Sukkot, it continued with putting up both the off-campus and the on-campus sukkot (and picking up the four aboreal elements).  It continued with MC’ing Beach Hillel’s Shabbat dinner in Beach Hillel’s off-campus sukkah.

The following day, along with students, we took down the Beach Hillel on-campus sukkah and, just last week, took down the off-campus sukkah.
