Inspired by Bedouin tent structures, this Sukkah at Congregation Beth Elohim in Park Slope, Brooklyn, pays tribute to refugees. The plywood curtain draws in visitors between its folds and the sheer curtains are combined with light to transform the Sukkah into a welcoming beacon at night. The all-green interior is an homage to the foliage that adorns a traditional Sukkah structure. The content of the exhibit is a series of slideshows that share the plight of individual refugees and tells the story of Sukkot. Colleagues who volunteered their time and talent to this project include Matthew Schreiber for his light installation, Stitch for their curtain fabrication, and Amanda Chung for her graphic design.
