Bournemouth Reform Synagogue assembled an enthusiastic team of volunteers on Tuesday 03 October to help apply the finishing touches to its Sukkah. The Sukkah is a temporary shelter traditionally erected at this time of year to mark the harvest festival of Sukkot.

An array of fragrant fruits and flowers were hung inside the structure and these were complemented by
hand-crafted decorations produced by the Cheder children.

Rabbi Maurice Michaels commented that “preparing the Sukkah is an important step in marking the transition from the solemnity of Yom Kippur to the rather more joyous Sukkot” and added that “this being BRS’s seventieth anniversary year adds further resonance to the occasion”.
