- Sukkat Shalom means a “sukkah of peace.” A sukkah is open with no roof or permanent walls. Sukkat Shalom, the Open Congregation, uses the image of a sukkah to remind us that our spiritual life is open to others and to God – flexible and dynamic. We offer a full program of innovative family education, meaningful and creative worship, adult discussion and study, interfaith couple support groups, and holiday observances. Sukkat Shalom is a progressive synagogue in which to explore Jewish thought and search for personal meaning. If you have questions about the experience of membership as an interfaith family at Congregation Sukkot Shalom, please reach out to one of the congregation's interfaith family members, Lisa and Dan Stein, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
