Guess who is coming to Sukkot? Welcoming the stranger is a tradition dating back to Abraham who welcomed strangers to the hospitality of his tent. The Social Action Committee will receive a special blessing on the bima this Sukkot, for the way that they honor the tradition of Abraham, welcoming the stranger through their many social action projects.

Following Sukkot services, enjoy a delicious dinner of Sushi, Sake and Stir Fry while watching the Israeli film, “Ushpizin.”  This film is groundbreaking on more than one count. It is a rare collaboration between secular and ultra-Orthodox Israelis and one of the first movies filmed in the insular Jerusalem neighborhood Mea Shearim with ultra-Orthodox actors.

All are welcome to attend this special Sukkot.  RSVP for dinner and the movie or contact Rosalie Ratner at 561-391-8900.

 

About the movie:
Moshe (Shuli Rand) and Malli (Michal Bat-Sheva Rand), an Orthodox Jewish couple in Jerusalem, are childless and without means to celebrate the weeklong holiday of Succoth. After much prayer, they receive unexpected money, and Moshe is told about an abandoned shack where he and Malli can properly deprive themselves and receive guests. However, they are visited by two ex-convicts with an unexpected link to Moshe's past, and the celebration becomes a series of emotional trials.
