Jews of Color, Sephardi and Mizrachi (JOCSM) Sukkah Gathering

We're creating a space for Jews of Color, Sephardi and Mizrachi (JOCSM) to socially distance gather in the Temple Israel sukkah.
We'll meet with our masks on, celebrate our ancestors and pray with lulavs and etrogs. If you and/or your children identify as JOCSM, please contact agvbauer(at) to RSVP and for more information. We're creating this JOCSM space together so please feel free to ask questions and share ideas!
