On Thursday, September 27th, Chabad Jewish Center of Southern Oregon will be hosting its first ever Sukkot Discovery Lab just for kids, part of their newly launched Ckids STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art, math) programming. Blending hands-on, STEM-based experiments and creations with the how’s and why’s of the ancient Jewish hut in the desert, the Sukkot Discovery Lab will launch a new year of CKids Club workshops right here in the heart of Southern Oregon. One of the first biblical holidays, Sukkot commemorates the divine protection the Jewish people experienced during their 40-year sojourn in the desert. Thousands of years later, Jews across the world continue to relive this event within the walls of a hand built sukkah. Today, children will gain a new insight into the mysterious qualities of Sukkot through the lens of science. Children will get hands-on as they make cloud slime, STEM sukkah-building and a pop art flag! The Discovery Lab is the first of monthly workshops run by Chabad which inspires children to create meaningful impact in their communities through fun, educational programs that explore the richness of Judaism. This year’s workshops include Hanukkah Chocolate coin making, Goodness grows, Tie dye Hamentashen, the art of giving, Passover Matzah Chef and more. Designed for ages 2-13, the events will be held at the Chabad Jewish Center at 1474 Siskiyou Blvd in Ashland. The Sukkot Discovery lab will be held on September 27 at 5pm and includes delicious pizza in the “hut”.
