Safe Sukkah Project

DECORATE YOUR SUKKAH WITH JQY SAFE SUKKAH SIGNS!

 

One of the most beautiful and beloved traditions of Sukkot is the opportunity to adorn our Sukkahs with decorations and art that make this temporary dwelling particularly a meaningful space. What could be better than decorations that make your sukkah feel safe and welcoming for everyone!? Introducing…the Safe Sukkah Project!


JQY is proud to offer these three ways to make your Sukkah extra fabulous.

 

1. This Is A SAFE Sukkah Poster - $36

(laminated 18'x24' poster)

Much like safe space stickers that are used worldwide to signify judgment-free zones where you can be yourself, this safe sukkah poster establishes your Sukkah as a place that strives to be free of bullying, shaming, or rejection. The poster communicates to you and your guests that this Sukkah is truly commemorative of the Ananei Ha-Kavod, the spiritual cloud, that not only protected Jews from harm in the desert, but upheld their dignity and collective self-esteem. 

 

2. This is a STRONG Sukkah Poster - $36

(laminated 18'x24' poster)

The Sukkah is a place where we gather, eat, discuss...and disagree. One of the hallmarks of the Jewish people is our ability to have constructive debate. Our goal is not to create a space where we all think alike, but rather to create a space that is strong enough to safely hold opposing views, multiple truths, and even identities in conflict. This is the idea behind our strong sukkah poster. Using the talmudic value of "Eilu-V'Eilu" translated as “both these and those” (Eruvin 13b) we pray that this Sukkah be strong enough to hold the diversity of our identities, points of view, and individual experiences. This poster reminds us that in this Sukkah, your whole self (even with your contradictions) belongs. 

3. This is a WELCOMING Sukkah Poster - $36

(laminated 18'x24' poster)

Sukkot is traditionally referred to as "zman simchateinu" – the time of our happiness – however, the Torah goes out of its way to make this happiness dependent upon how inclusive we are in our celebration. The biblical verse on Sukkot says "ach sameach" (there will ONLY be happiness) when the commandment of "vesamachta b'chagecha" – you should celebrate your holiday – includes "you, your children, your workers, the Levites, the converts, the orphans, the widows...etc". We believe that the Torah is teaching us that the Sukkah must be a place of radical and proactive welcoming...and we can't thing of anything more queer and fabulous than that!
