Reserve A Mealtime in a CSAIR Sukkah

Individuals or groups can reserve one of four sukkot at CSAIR for their use at times throughout the afternoon and evening of the holiday and Hol Hamoed. Those reserving the space should bring their 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 individual or group 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. The suggested donation for using one of the CSAIR sukkot is $18 a meal to help us cover security and custodial costs. Sign up here and donate here.
