Shalom, planning for Sukkot 2012 is well underway! Unless Messiah enables us all to go to Yerushalayim, we plan to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles at Lake Murray State Park, Oklahoma. This is Oklahoma's oldest and largest state park and lies on the shores of beautiful Lake Murray. The park is located halfway between Oklahoma City and Dallas, 10 miles south of Ardmore, Oklahoma.
We have reserved Group Camp #2 for Sukkot from 9/30/2012 – 10/8/2012. The group camp has sleeping cabins, a community kitchen and a dining room/teaching area. There are also a block of rooms at the Lake Murray Lodge and Cabins (and teaching rooms) reserved at the Lodge. Speakers and teachers include Rabbi James Trimm (WNAE), Rabbi Rob Miller (WNAE and Agudat Bris, Temple, TX) and Larry and Yvonne Meadows (Beit-Lechem/Brownwood Torah Group, Brownwood, TX), Zaqen/Elder Wayne Ingalls (Beit Tefillah, Lawton, OK) and others. The planning dates for Sukkot are those of the Hillel calendar, with erev Sukkot on the evening of 9/30/2012 and Shemini Atzeret (the 8th Day Solemn Assembly) on 10/8/2012. No matter which calendar you use, we believe you will be blessed by joining with us for Sukkot.
How much is this going to cost? The expected lodging cost per family at Group Camp #2 is $12/night. We also plan garage sales/fund raisers to go for the cost of the camp and to help defray the cost for families that need financial aid. John and Debbie Williams (940-631-2276) are the points of contact for information about the Group Camp and for the fund raisers.
To ensure you have a place in the camp, we ask that you register. If you plan to stay at the Lake Murray Lodge, please make your reservations there separately by calling 580 223 6600 and tell them you are coming to Lake Murray for Sukkot.
