The festival will celebrate song, spirit and soul as the hosts explore the magic of Sukkoth, shaking the lulav and time travel. Following the Sukkoth event, participants are welcome to BYOB – bring-your-own-basket – of dairy or vegetarian foods to enjoy the observance of dwelling in the Sukkah.
Burnett’s songs have been performed around the world by Bette Midler, Patti Lupone, and more. He and his wife, Debrah LaMattre, are well known at Hollywood Temple Beth El, where they have led musical Seders. His musical theater company, Jubilation Musical Society, has performed the original Jewish musicals, “The Young Maccabees” and “MEM.”
The event is open to the public at no charge, but reservations should be made in advance for Sukkath Shalom to (323)656-3150 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
