Virtual Sukkah Hop

During Sukkot, the Center City Kehillah is pleased to offer a variety of opportunities to celebrate with our community, virtually visit each other’s sukkot, and touch base over the holiday, even though we can’t be all together in person.

Register HERE for any (or all!) of the Virtual Sukkah Hop dates. We can’t wait to see you on Zoom!
