The Homeless Sukkah ProjectThe Homeless Sukkah Project
Thanks very much for your interest in building a Homeless Sukkah.
The goal of the Homeless Sukkah Project is to build a sukkah entirely of the signs homeless people use on the streets of LA.
At least 58,000 homeless men, women and children live in Los Angeles County, a 16 percent jump over the last two years. Mayor Eric Garcettti has pledged to eliminate, not just manage, homelessness.
The Homeless Sukkah will draw special attention to the problem of homelessness in LA and serve as a standing, visible reminder of a terrible problem that our elected leaders, together with us, must solve. You can read Rob Eshman’s initial editorial on the Homeless Sukkah here.
This is what the Homeless Sukkah Project needs:
1) More homeless signs.
3) A location.
The Jewish Journal will provide a Web site, social media and publicity. If you, your synagogue, your friends or your business or institution would like to get involved — or even take this project on — please let me know ASAP. Send an email to email@example.com.
