Pickling for Sukkot
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Pickling in the Sukkah

As the leaves turn and temperatures drop we welcome the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, a harvest festival. With the summer’s bounty coming to an end, many people turn to pickling, canning, and otherwise preserving the flavors of summer for the winter months ahead.

Join Manager of Jewish life, Amanda Herring, in the Sukkah in the EDCJCC parking lot to learn all about pickling and preserving for the Sukkot holiday. Taste different kinds of pickles, and make your own garlic dilly beans and sauerkraut.

You will go home with jars containing the pickles you made which will be complete in about a week!

Date: Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE: If your plans need to change due to COVID concerns or local ordinance changes, we will work with you to exchange or credit your ticket toward a comparable program or activity on a future date. We know life is unpredictable these days, and the EDCJCC is here for you!
