Second Saturdays: Apple Prints for Sukkot
Saturday, October 8
10:00 a.m. 3:00 p.m.
Downtown Campus, 27 Pleasant Street, Gloucester, MA
Free for Cape Ann Residents and members of the PJ Library, Lappin Foundation, and Temple Ahavat Achim.
This October, the Cape Ann Museum is partnering with the Lappin Foundation, Temple Ahavat Achim, and the Jewish Arts Collaborative to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, and the universal themes of harvest, respect for nature, gratitude, and shelter that are recognized in these holidays. A sukkah, provided by the Lappin Foundation, will be set up in the CAM Courtyard and hung with apples, a symbol of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year festival.
To celebrate the opening day of the special exhibition Designed & Hand-Blocked by the Folly Cove Designers, these apples will be cut in half and used to make apple prints. The Folly Cove Designers took great inspiration from nature. Many of their designs focus on themes of harvest and nature, including Apple Pie by Peggy Norton.
Stop by the Cape Ann Museum to make your own Apple Prints in the Courtyard from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and stick around for Sukkah Story Time at 11:30 am. Members of Temple Ahavat Achim will read books from the PJ Library, an organization that sends free Jewish children's books to families across the world every month, and Virginia Lee Burton’s The Little House. Rabbi David Kudan will then share information about the holiday, the sukkah, and some of the symbols of the holiday including the Etrog and the Lulav.
