On the cool evening of September 16, 19 women joined together for Louisville Hadassah’s pre-Sukkot party inside the Jewish Community Center’s Sukkah. Attendees were a mix of women from throughout the Jewish community, including several mother-daughter pairs.
The women started the evening with a delicious homemade meal prepared by Michall Goldman. After the dinner, Nanz and Kraft held a flower-arranging workshop where participants were able to make personal fall floral arrangements in glass vases to take home for their own sukkot. The evening was filled with creativity, laughter, and chit-chat under the stars that shone through the branches of the sukkah roof.
Hadassah is the Women’s Zionist Organization of America and is a volunteer organization that inspires a passion for and commitment to its partnership with the land and people of Israel. Louisville’s chapter of Hadassah hosts social events throughout the year while informing women with updates about Israel and also includes programs tailored towards local women.
