150th Celebration Siyyum Torah Dedication and Sukkot Block Party

Sunday, September 22, 10am-1pm
Join our community as we culminate our 150th year by holding a special Siyyum and Torah Dedication ceremony.
This Siyyum, or closing celebration, is the culmination of a year of programming to mark Congregation Beth Elohim's 150th anniversary. The Torah that will be dedicated has been scribed by a ritual scribe, Linda Coppleson, together with over 700 members of the CBE community who have participated in individual scribing rituals. This will also be an opportunity for us to rededicate CBE's seven sifrei Torah.
The celebration will continue at 11am with our annual Sukkot Festival and Block Party. This free event will feature opportunities to become engaged in social action projects, shake the lulav and etrog in our community sukkah, feast on foods from our favorite neighborhood food trucks, laugh and play in our bouncy house and enjoy the music of Debbie Brukman and klezmer sensation, Golem!
