A Joyous Multifaith Celebration of Sukkot, the Jewish Harvest Festival — with Music!

4:45- 6:45pm

Bet Torah invites our dear Muslim and Christian friends to our sukkah to celebrate our gratitude for all our blessings, using music and text from our three traditions.

Celebrate the power of music to transform and touch us spiritually in all religions.

We are so fortunate to have Cantor Gil Ezring and Anne Carpenter — local performers of folk, jazz, and classical music — lead us in songs reflecting each of our faiths. (You’ll be surprised by how much overlap there is!)

Our singing will be interspersed with teachings from the spiritual leaders of Bet Torah, Upper Westchester Muslim Society, and Presbyterian Church of Mount Kisco.
