A traditional Sukkah was constructed by staff members and set on The Legacy lawn adorned with fall foliage, branches, and artful decorations made by the residents. Rabbi Yitzchak Cohen led the services.
“It is wonderful to ‘dwell together in unity in the Sukkah’ just as we learned from Rabbi Cohen,” said Lana Van Giesen, executive director, The Legacy at Willow Bend. “Because the Sukkah is a temporary dwelling, it makes us appreciate where we live. It was truly a day of rejoicing.”
