CNS is inaugurating this new route by transforming our booth into a Sukkah (booth or temporary dwelling). We’re using Parkways to draw attention to the ancient harvest festival and educate the public about helping meet the needs of our Portland community.

The harvest festival of Sukkot is an eight day holiday which begins at sundown on Sunday, September 27th.

“Living in a temporary dwelling raises our awareness of those who live in temporary structures in our local community and communities around us all year long,” Rabbi Eve Posen.
