Congregation Etz Chaim in Biddeford is hosting an open house event on the evening of Oct. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will begin with a potluck Shabbat dinner, followed by family-friendly activities (including crafts, songs, and stories related to the fall harvest holiday of Sukkot) and the communal decorating of the synagogue’s sukkah, a structure used during the week-long Sukkot festival. There will be ample opportunity to discuss interests, ideas, and requests pertaining to the congregation’s services and offerings, including its education classes, for the year 5784.

The open house is free and open to the public, though pre-registration is required. The congregation asks that each family attending the potluck bring a vegetarian or dairy dish (no meat) to share. Drinks and desserts will be provided.

A donation of canned goods or cash for local food banks is optional and appreciated.
