Jewish Culture Club hosts event

Over the course of two days, on Wednesday, Oct. 16 and Thursday, Oct. 17, community members partook in the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, the festival of the harvest.

As part of the festival, the Longwood University Jewish Culture Club built a Sukkah and hosted a meal. Education on the festival and ritual objects, such as a Lulav and Etrog, were shared. Standing in front of the Sukkah are, from left, president of the Jewish Culture Club, Jesse Plichta-Kellar, and the event’s chair, Jordan Berkompas.
