Sukkot Across America At Seward Park

by Pat Arnow

The Bialystoker Synagogue invited the neighborhood to “enjoy delightful desserts and live music,” as part of the celebration of the National Sukkot Across America evening last Thursday. The event, inspired and sponsored by Mr. Sam Domb, and part of a nationwide initiative of the National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP), linked Jewish sukkahs from sea to shining sea, which included the event at the Seward Park Housing sukkah, where musicians Reuven Danenberg, Rosanne Soifer, Paul Shapiro and David Fields raised the roof (although, come to think of it, in a sukkah anybody can raise the roof – is this a potential new slogan or what?)

Rachel Friedland, who is 3 and a half years old, showed the pine cone she made in the Educational Alliance’s Torah Tots class, to help decorate the sukkah

This enthusiastic group of old friends in the back called themselves alter cachers: l-r: Beth Faitelewicz, Betty Goodman, Mel Rosenbach, Heidi Rosenbach

The Bialystoker Synagogue’s Rabbi Zvi Romm introduced the band

Reuven Danenberg, violin, Paul Shapiro, tenor sax, in the band, "The Cooperators" - so called because they all live in the co-ops around Grand Street

The Cooperators: Reuven Danenberg, violin, Soifer Danenberg (Reuven's mom), keyboards, Paul Shapiro, tenor sax, David Fields, guitar. They say they play everything but "My Yiddishe Mama."
