As the holiday of Sukkot approaches this evening, Jews and their friends will spend the next week in flimsy huts, with only plant life lashed together for a roof, and still enough space between the branches to see the stars.

Sukkot marks the end of the growing season and the celebration of the harvest, projects us back mythically to the Israelites wandering the desert and resting in temporary homes throughout the journey, and lets us land in community, in home, after the High Holy Day season of personal introspection. As I write to you, asking for fiscal support on top of all the generosity listeners like yourself have already shown, I'm thinking of the lessons of Sukkot. Lessons that teach us that no matter what we have, we can lash it together to create shelter, to find home, and space to
rejuvenate before we return out into the world.

This project has been funded through my school, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, with a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford. Part of this grant requires me to fundraise at a 2:1 rate--that means that I have to raise $10k this year in order for Kaddish to continue to flourish!
