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.
I then stopped by the on-campus Beach Hillel sukkah on Monday of Sukkot for Beach Hillel’s “Pizza in the Hut” event. The following day, we had our staff meeting inside the on-campus Sukkah, where I spoke about the four aboreal elements that were featured there.
That night, I joined in on the annual Sukkah Hop in Irvine that Beach Hillel has partnered with the Chabad of UCI, which – as always – was a blast, where we visited multiple sukkot and students from CSULB, UCI and other schools got to enjoy meeting other Jewish students in the area.
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.
