USY Pumpkin Carving and Jewish Ghost Stories

Sunday, October 15, 2023 30 Tishrei 5784

7:00 PM - 9:00 PMBeth Tikvah Synagogue

Grades 8-12, join us for pumpkin carving and Jewish ghost stories!

After hosting this event in 2014, Rabbi Kenny Weiss, Houston Hillel’s executive director, stated, “Some people think that Jews should not celebrate Halloween, but it’s a great opportunity to explore Judaism’s haunted past. There are Jewish stories from hundreds of years ago about demons, vampires, ghosts and all the other characters we associate with Halloween. More often than not, the stories include Jewish characters, like a rabbi. Most of the stories also teach a lesson or reinforce Jewish observance, like not rushing to do work immediately after Shabbat concludes.”
