Pre-Sukkot Mitzvah Marathon in Fair Lawn

If you are looking to maximize your mitzvah opportunities after Yom Kippur, Ahavat Achim in Fair Lawn is the place for you. Why focus on just one Yom Tov preparation at a time when there’s a place right next door where the whole family can simultaneously learn, laugh, and lulav their way into Sukkot? Ahavat Achim will present a Pre-Sukkot Mitzvah Marathon to feature a host of mitzvah-related opportunities on Sunday, October 5 at 9 a.m. While one corner will offer adult volunteers the chance to help raise the rafters of the shul’s beautiful Sukkah, children will have the opportunity to display serious craftsmanship at a Sukkah-decorating workshop, under the auspices of Ahavat Achim’s Gitta Cooperwasser Youth Program, which will be held in the shul’s social hall (to begin at 9:30). As has been the case for several years, Ahavat Achim will be teaming up with Bnei Akiva for the sale of lulavim and etrogim.

In addition to preparations for Sukkot, a very exciting feature of the day will be a special father-son workshop for pre-bar mitzvah boys [and recently post-bar mitzvah boys] who are thinking about a new mitzvah about to come their way: Rabbi Dov Goldzweig, an expert sofer STA”M [scribe] from Israel, will take the boys on a tour of their tefillin, including a demonstration of how the Torah passages are written.

Located at 18-25 Saddle River Road in Fair Lawn, Ahavat Achim’s Mitzvah Marathon will provide an exciting jump-start to a great Yom Tov.
