Drive by Lulav Shake!

We invite you to join us for our first ever DRIVE BY LULAV SHAKE! While we will have to wait until next year to experience Sukkot fully together in our BCC Sukkah, Thanks to the incredible generosity of our members, Maggie and Dave Parkhurst and Stephen Sass and Steve Hochstadt, you will have the opportunity to shake the Lulav and Etrog in a Sukkah! Click on the links below and choose which Sukkah you would like to visit, the Parkhursts live on the Westside of LA and Stephen and Steve live in the Valley. When you register, you will be given all the information you will need.
Out of respect to our wonderful hosts, please make sure to register beforehand! Every health precaution will be taken. Everyone must be wearing masks at all times. We will provide disposable gloves that must be used by all handling the Lulav and Etrog. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray will also be available. We believe strongly that we can share in these wonderful community moments in new ways, while always prioritizing all of our health and safety.

We are so grateful to our hosts as well as the Ritual Committee for their help in making this a reality!
