    - The service will be led by Rabbi Frank Tamburello. Light refreshments will be provided. Admission is free, but donations are always welcome.


    What is Sukkot?

    Sukkot follows the Jewish New Year. This eight-day festival, also known as Hag Haasif, Festival of the Ingathering, originally was a fall harvest festival. The sukkot (booths decorated with greens and fruits) were huts built in the fields for shelter during the harvest.

    In priestly Judaism, Sukkot became a reminder of the Exodus from Egypt, a celebration of God’s power. The booths represented the dwellings of the Hebrews during their forty-year sojourn in the wilderness. Rabbinic Judaism attempted to revitalize this agricultural celebration for an urban population by tying it to the Torah; thus the last day of Sukkot is Simhat Torah, a day of rejoicing in the Torah.

    Humanistic Jews find human significance in the original Sukkot celebration. Agriculture was the first step, a quantum leap toward human mastery of the environment. As farms grew into settlements, which became towns and cities, human ingenuity and courage propelled civilization toward the secular age and even greater human achievements.

    Sukkot, then, is a tribute to human prowess. Agricultural, industrial, and technological advances all form the basis of a Humanistic celebration of Sukkot.
    Sukkot offers an opportunity in the fall for communities to come together, to experience the out-of-doors, to recognize the interconnectedness of humanity, and to acknowledge responsibility for the environment. In ancient times, Jews gathered in booths for the harvest to increase efficiency. For Humanistic Jews, Sukkot offers an opportunity to work together to build the sukka, which then can become the center of an outdoor celebration: a picnic under a roof open to the sun or stars, or a community bonfire that evokes memories of family cookouts or camp overnights.

    Three additional themes may reflect the agricultural origins of the holiday. First, building and taking apart the sukka may call to mind the transitory nature of human existence and the fleetingness of human experience. Second, the covering of the sukka is organic, suggesting human beings’ dependence upon nature, as well as their mastery of it. Third, the fullness and beauty of the harvest may focus attention on the abundance of beauty in the world.

    Humanistic Jews use the ancient symbols of Sukkot – the lulav (a date palm branch tied together with myrtle and willow) and the etrog (a fragrant citron)—as symbols of the harvest in Israel, a connection to the Jewish homeland.

    There is a tradition of welcoming guests, called ushpizin, into your sukka, a tradition that is very consistent with the welcoming attitude of Humanistic Judaism.

    - This three-part workshop will explore the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation and how it cultivates mindfulness –the ability to tune into your senses and be present to what’s happening moment by moment instead of getting lost in the storyline of your thoughts. Through mindfulness exercises, meditation instruction, discussion and exposure to various meditation techniques, you will gain a clearer awareness of your thoughts and emotions. You will learn how to begin a simple meditation practice that you can do anywhere along with suggestions on how to make it a habit. If you’re a regular meditator, you’ll learn how to deepen your existing practice. And you’ll learn easy ways to bring mindfulness, along with gratitude, appreciation and joy into your everyday life.

    Angélique Kidjo was named one of The Guardian’s 100 most inspiring women in the world, was the first woman to appear on Forbes’s list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa, and is included on the BBC’s list of Africa’s 50 most iconic figures.

    As a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Kidjo travels the world advocating on behalf of women, children, and human rights. In 2007, she founded the Batonga Foundation to provide secondary education for girls across Africa and empower the female leaders of tomorrow. From Fair Trade initiatives and curbing climate change to urging a ceasefire in war-torn Sudan, Angélique Kidjo has proven that artists can be the best agents for change with their unbound imagination and unique way of envisioning the world.

Fun things to do in White Plains

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area. To learn more about how to become a Town Planner franchise owner, please view our franchise information page.
