A cornerstone of the holiday of Sukkot is the sukkah, or temporary shelter, covered in natural materials that is used especially for celebratory meals during the festival. SOJOURN In The Sukkah, now in its 2nd year, has grown from a single event to a series of five events, an evolution that is evocative of the Jewish community’s embrace of the LGBTQ+ community.
SOJOURN hosts a number of events throughout the South during the year. We also sponsor local, volunteer-driven social groups in Atlanta and Birmingham whose events may not always be listed here. To check out those volunteer-planned events, visit their MeetUp pages here:
