The Junk Mail Sukkah was put together by students at the Marin campus of Brandeis Hillel Day School. Following up on their Milk Jug Sukkah of 2012, which also incorporated recycled materials, the students collected 51 pounds of catalogs and 22 pounds of junk mail for this year’s project. The leading collectors, according to art teacher Lisa Levy, were the second-graders with 34 pounds of catalogs and the fourth-graders with 10 pounds of junk mail. This sukkah can be viewed at the Osher Marin JCC Harvest Festival (see page 2 for details).
On Sept. 15 during its annual Sukkot celebration, the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto held a sukkah-building competition that included several categories. Among the winners were the Cuneo and Mighdoll families in the “best family effort” category; pictured (above, right) are Milo and Emmett Mighdoll. The “best ocean theme” sukkah (top) was built by the Levi family: from left, Danielle, Itamar, Oryan and Yaniv. All of the sukkahs are on display at the JCC’s Saal Family Midrahov through the end of Sukkot on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
The Sukkah of the Signs at the Osher Marin JCC is composed of dozens of signs purchased from homeless people in the Bay Area and across the nation. It’s a version of the larger, award-winning sukkah that East Bay architect Ronald Rael designed and built for the 2010 Sukkah City event in New York City. The signs are originals, from among the 300 that were part of his NYC sukkah, which he purchased from homeless people. Rael will be on hand at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Osher Marin JCC Harvest Festival, where the sukkah will be on display.
