A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR FRIENDS AT IKAR…
Last month, on Sunday, September 22nd, some 20 congregants from IKAR, an egalitarian Jewish community, and about 30 community members of Proyecto Jardin jointly celebrated a joyous Sukkot. Using freshly cut vines and other natural materials IKAR decorated Proyecto Jardin to create a beautiful sukkah. Prayer and dancing moved everyone from from different faiths and parts of the city to talk to each other and dwell together in peace in the lovely sukkah. Thank you, IKAR, for sharing your faith, culture and traditions with us. Because of partners like you, together we’re mobilizing collective action for a healthier community and planet.
