A crowd of 220 celebrated the holiday of Sukkot with a family farm festival at the Pearlstone Center in Reisterstown on Oct. 8. The event gave families an opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including pickling, sheep shearing, soccer, boating and zip-lining, supervised by staff from Camps Airy and Louise. A sukkah-decorating activity was sponsored by the Center for Jewish Education, while Jewish Volunteer Connection engaged visitors in a service project.

Amy Bram, the Pearlstone Center’s special programs manager, said the event was one of four family festivals the center will offer on a quarterly basis. Bram said the festivals “showcase the seasonability of Pearlstone, Judaism and the world around us.”

The next family festival will take place on Jan. 28 in celebration of the holiday of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish new year of trees.
