How We Gather: The Vassar Sukkah Project


In-person events are suspended until further notice. The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is now also closed. If you are a member of the Vassar Community, check out the Department of Athletics & Physical Education’s new virtual health & fitness program. Meanwhile, we urge everyone to comply with Gov. Cuomo’s executive order by maintaining a six-foot distance from others in public and washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.

How We Gather: The Vassar Sukkah Project
A sukkah is a Jewish sketch of a dwelling, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest of Sukkot (pronounced sue-coat) and then dismantled. In these pop-up shelters, all are invited to gather to celebrate the harvest, remember the parts of our lives that are transitory, and celebrate community.
