PRIVATE KIDDUSH
The shul is building four modest sukkot (one on the balcony outside the sanctuary doors, one in the driveway, and two in the backyard parking lot). The sukkah on the balcony will be constructed with low walls (10 tefachim=32 inches high) with screening above that so that there is maximal airflow inside the sukkah and in the sanctuary. 

In order to ensure maximal safety, our shul will not host communal kiddushes, meals, or any other sukkah gatherings in these sukkot. However, after services on the mornings of Sukkot, we will provide a chance for people to enter the sukkah on the balcony of the synagogue after services and make a short private (one family/pod at a time) kiddush. We will provide grape juice and challah.

Reserve A Mealtime in a CSAIR Sukkah
Families/pods can reserve one of four sukkot at CSAIR for their own use at times throughout the afternoon and evening of the holiday and Hol Hamoed. 

Families/pods should bring their own kosher food and utensils and the shul will provide disposable tablecloths. Our custodial staff will be on-site to monitor clean-up. Bathrooms will be open in the synagogue.

Each family/pod should sign up for no more than TWO meal times. If you'd like more, put yourself on the waitlist by the mealtime you would like.

To reserve a spot, sign up HERE.

BUILDING A SUKKAH
For families building sukkot on their own, we offer the following guidance: Most sukkot as traditionally constructed (2.5-3.5 walls) should be considered indoor spaces in terms of potential exposure to Covid 19. These sukkot are fine for individual family/pod use. The Medical Committee does not recommend mixing of pods but if you want to make a sukkah with more airflow, here is how:

You can construct low walls (at least 32”) or use a material (such as this) that lets the air through for the walls. These walls should cover at least two perpendicular sides plus a foot-and-a-half making a third wall coming out of one of the full walls.

CSAIR’s Second Annual Torah Stroll

The Torah Stroll is back based on last year’s success. Sign up here for one of the Torah portions, and draw your thoughts on paper or cardboard of any size or type.

Please bring it to the shul at one of the times noted and see the entire display on Simchat Torah.

Drop off time is Sunday, September 26 between 9 AM and Noon.

For questions or more information contact Mason Voit.

CSAIR SINGS FOR SIMCHAT TORAH

In late 2020, Israel’s top artists created the song Katan Aleinu (translated as “We’ve Got This!”) to boost morale. 

In early 5782, CSAIR will learn our own version of the song. We will record and share this with the congregation virtually and sing together as a community in person on Simchat Torah (Tuesday, September 28, and Wednesday, September 29). 

All ages and musical abilities are invited - no auditioning!!

On September 12 we learned the song in person with Cantor Elizabeth Stevens.

Want to be part of the recording? Stay tuned for details on how to submit your recording.

Not a singer? Not a problem - be part of the accompanying slide show! Send a photo of you / family members that show the world you’ve got this. 

Please upload photos here
