LCDS Celebrates Sukkot!
On a balmy evening in Tishri, LCDS families gathered together to celebrate a festive Sukkot meal in and around our sukkah. Kudos to resident Executive Chef Peter (and his able assistant Ruby) for an exceptional repast, and to our faculty and staff who set up and served the delicious meal.
Candle lighting: 6:42 pm
