Most of us didn’t get a chance to participate in real-life communal Sukkot celebrations this year. Which is why LEV, EUJS and Junction have joined together to build a virtual sukkah.
We have invited multiple guests to come on in, make themselves comfortable, bring food and drinks and have a chat about how to create connections when we cannot physically meet. How do we strengthen community when communal spaces are either accessible to just a few people or closed altogether? What can Sukkot teach us about our vulnerabilities and our potential for resilience?
We invited awesome people from diverse communities from across Europe to share their thoughts, ideas, songs, poems and feelings about enabling connections, designing virtual communities and what it takes to be truly connected during this time of rising populism and antisemitism, and the Covid-19 imposed physical distancing requirements. They brought their friends. Their ideas. Their stories. It was a celebration!
