As I write this, we will be getting ready to celebrate Sukkot. Sukkot begins Wednesday night at sundown and continues to Friday night at sundown. Yes, there are more holidays in the fall than just Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This is a very busy time of year and can leave your head spinning.
Growing up, I remember some of the Jewish celebrations at nursery school and beyond. As an adult, I recall my aunt and uncle building a sukkah in their yard and going to their house for a party with other family and friends. This photo was taken in their sukkah in the fall of 2001.
Now, I watch as my boys learn about the different holidays at home, in school. and Hebrew School. We create our own memories and continue with traditions that have been passed along from generation to generation.
JSL’s class has been working very hard to create decorations for their school. Check out the fantastic Sukkot display that they made with all of the other classes:
The little guy even agreed to jump into a photo to point to the item that he made within the display.
JSL was able to select from several different items to decorate. He listened to the list the other day and immediately wanted to make a shofar. This is a closer view of his masterpiece.
Wishing everyone who celebrates a festive Sukkot. May you enjoy spending time with family and friends in your sukkah and being one with nature.
