Did you know, that way back in ancient times, one practice of Sukkot was a wild, rain-evoking Temple ritual celebrated with a joyous, non-stop party involving singing, orchestras (biblical style), dancing, and even some fire-juggling? Well this year, NuRoots in the Valley is going back to their Temple roots to present a magical, melodic Sukkah experience featuring amazing live performances by the Israeli electronic duo Lee Triffon & Roy Regev, cabaret-inspired singer Tova Katz, and multi-lingual, singer-songwriter Eitan Snyder. Join us in the beautiful backyard for this night of musical thrills, food, drinks, and joy.

Remember the thrill of camping out in your backyard as a kid? Couples are invited to recreate this at our slumber party-style extravaganza celebrating Sukkot and the magic of childhood traditions.

Oh, and one more thing... this evening is B.Y.O.B — bring your own booze, baked good, and board game! Get ready to twist(er) and shake your lulav!

Sukkot is all about the sukkah, good times and… ritualized movement? Huh? We shake the lulav and etrog in six directions—left, right, up, down, forward and backward—to draw blessing from all corners of the Earth and redirect blessing to all creation. It’s the closest thing in Judaism to a rain dance! So, this Sukkot we’re running with that, shaking our groove thang and throwing a celebratory party where dance, music, and art performances fill the space of the Sukkah. Don’t miss a night of tunes, drinks, visual feasts, and some of your favorite local grubs.
