On Sunday, September 26, 2010, thirty Adat Shalom congregants celebrated Sukkot in Tishrei in partnership with Yachad, a DC nonprofit housing and community development organization. The day was spent in the Fort Totten neighborhood of Washington, D.C building an accessibility ramp at an apartment building where Yachad is working to make units accessible and affordable. Congregants of all ages came together to finish up the project which was begun earlier in the summer at Yachad’s Ramp it Up! summer program teaching teens constructions skills. Rabbi Fred Dobb was on hand for the work and for a bit of Jewish learning about Sukkot and “tikkun olam.” Volunteers worked long and hard, some even missing Sukkot parties in order to finish the project. Thanks to all who helped out.
