Story

With the divisive political rhetoric of today, creating a platform for open dialogue is vital, your donations could bring together grassroots communities.

“The Sukkah makes a visual impact, it is a booth with no doors, it remains open, it’s a pop up place of hope and tolerance. It symbolises the fact we’re not closed we’re open, we’re all underneath God’s protection.” (Rabbi Natan Levy)

A Sukkah is a wooden booth built and used to celebrate the Jewish festival of Sukkot or Tabernacles, it commemorates the temporary huts that the freed slaves of Israel dwelled in after leaving Egypt and has always been a place for welcoming strangers and refugees.

In 2017, the Al Khoei Foundation and Al Manaar community Mosque each hosted members of all faiths and none to have brunch together at the Sukkah at the entrance of the mosque. The interfaith brunch successfully created dialogue and understanding about Sukkot as well as highlighting that the Mosque is always open to the wider community.

Costs include sourcing organic materials such as bamboo and the building of the Sukkah, as well as ensuring there is Kosher and Halal food available.
