    Dark green palm fronds with a dark background. The words say: "Ushpizata: Celebrate Sukkot, the autumnal Festival of Ingathering as we welcome special guests beneath the bows of our virtual sukkah. free places will be available for those in need"

    Ushpizata and Ushpizin are Aramaic terms referring to the special guests that we traditionally welcome into the Sukkah (temporary shelter) throughout the festival of Sukkot, both ancestral and living.
    At Yelala, we welcome you as our special guest, along with some very special guest facilitators bringing meditation, story, and reflection to our Chag HaAsif - our Festival of Ingathering - as the season turns .
