6 October 2020 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Will you be missing real life Sukkot celebrations in your community this year? We certainly will. That is why LEV, EUJS and Junction have joined together to build a virtual sukkah and we hope to see YOU there.
Come on in, make yourself comfortable, bring your food and drinks and let’s have a chat about how to create connections when we cannot physically meet. How do we strengthen community when communal spaces are either accessible to just a few people or closed altogether? What can Sukkot teach us about our vulnerabilities and our potential for resilience?
We will invite awesome people from diverse communities from across Europe to share their thoughts, ideas, songs, poems and feelings about enabling connections, designing virtual communities and what it takes to be truly connected during this time of rising populism and antisemitism, and the Covid-19 imposed physical distancing requirements. Bring your friends.
Bring your ideas. Bring your stories. It’s a celebration!

Values are at the heart of Limmud and Limmud Europe Values (LEV) is an exciting new collaborative project exploring those values. In times of rising populism, systemic racism and physical distances, LEV brings together Jewish communities across Europe. It is a series of 12 events dedicated to Limmud Values.
The European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) is a pluralistic, inclusive, non-partisan umbrella organization, aiming for a vibrant and sustainable Jewish future in Europe, achieved by empowering Jewish youth to make a positive contribution to European society.
Junction is a JDC program whose aim is to inspire Jewish young people to create engagement. Its long-term mission is to help Jewish young adults in Europe realize their ideas for Jewish life and community.
