The Jewish Museum and Archives of BC, Grandview Woodlands Food Connection, and Or Shalom are pleased to present the inaugural Britannia Sukkot Festival.
The Jewish Holiday of Sukkot celebrates the fall harvest and commemorates the exodus from Egypt. To celebrate, Jews gather in a “sukkah”, or temporary shelter, to dine with family and friends.
Join us for an intercultural feast on October 10, 2017 to celebrate our appreciation for the harvest, community connections, and the Coast Salish land we call home.
