Happy Ushpizin

IAC Gvanim Alumni presents a Community-wide Sukkot game:“Happy Ushpizin”

A lovely way to visit the different Sukkah in our community and for the host to present their Sukkah.
Our community’s “Sukkah hoppers” will receive a map with the neighborhood’s welcoming Sukkahs. Each Sukkah they visit will provide them with a sticker.

Sukkah hoppers that filled out their map with stickers will then enter a raffle


Sunday September 23rd between 1 - 4pm (rain date Sunday September 30th)

At this time, we are signing up hosting Sukkahs. So, if you plan to build a Sukkah and happy to have 3 hours filled with joy of friendly visitors, please consider joining us.

Our Sukkah hoppers will rate the hosting Sukkahs for decoration, hospitality and creativity.

The highest rated Sukkah host will win a prize
