Monroe. Enjoy ‘Soup in the Sukkah’ with Monroe Temple on Sept. 26

| 20 Sep 2021 | 02:03

On Sunday, Sept. 26, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., the Monroe Temple Beth-El will be hosting “Soup in the Sukkah” at its temple, located at 314 North Main St. in Monroe.

Enjoy soups, stews or chili prepared by local home chefs while dining outside.

Sukkot is a festival that expresses thanks for the fall harvest and commemorates the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai.

One tradition is to build a sukkah, which is a booth or hut, and dine in that hut. On Sept. 12, a hearty group of volunteers led by the Men’s Action Club built a sukkah, where during this event people will be able to dine in the open air in and around that sukkah.

Kosher-style soups, including Sweet Potato Ginger, Mushroom Barley and Split Pea, will be served by both the chefs and volunteers wearing masks. Social distancing will be observed.

Enjoy comforting warm soups outdoors for a ticket price of $18 per person, $54 for a family of four or more. Soups can be ordered for pickup later at $18 per quart.

The event is open to the entire community.

Tickets can be purchased at (Select the category Soup in the Sukkah).

Payment can be made using credit or debit cards or by check at the temple office.
