Sukkot in 2018 will start on Monday, the 24th of September (24/9/2018) and will continue for 7 days until Sunday, the 30th of September.9
I remember Sukkot 1967 I was in Paris Island S.C. attending Marine Corps Boot Camp and the Savanna Jewish Center would make a Sukkah and stock it with fresh fruit and wine right on Paris Island .It was welcome site from the rigors of recruit training.
Because they couldn’t interupt the Saturday Training Schedule hence the Jewish recruits had to have their weekly services on a Sunday’s & as sort of consilation the Jewish Personel we were told that they would be taken to Savanna Georgia to attend services on Yom Kippur. If that not all a lavish catered meal was supplied for us in a Catering Hall just like a Bar Mitzvah or Wedding right after the services. I thought it was the greatest thing ever done for us. In addition every Sunday they had Bagels and Lox waiting for us outside of the Activities Building were our services were conducted. I will never foget what the Savanna Jews Community did for the Jews and Myself when we attended Boot Camp.
I don’t know if that Savanna Jewish community remains there today in or if are do they still help the recruits the way they did back then But I would like to find out and make a long over due donation to them if they are still in business..
