Getting Ready For Sukkot

With less than 48 hours before the first wave of the lulav, Sukkot is almost upon us. Thank you to Noah Cohen and Fred Sturm, who spearheaded the charge to collect palm fronds, and all the brotherhood members who were hacking those fronds to build the Sukkah at PTS not even a dozen hours after the break fast - finishing in time for the religious school "Pizza in the Hut."

Brotherhood has a lot of things happening this year. Come socialize with your fellow PTS Brotherhood members.

To that end, put October 27 on your calendar. We're planning a get-out-of-the-house night for Brotherhood members (finalizing details for American Bull in Burlingame).

Look for more notes as we start filling the Brotherhood blog with information on upcoming activities and items of interest.
