From Reveler Rowyn Peel:
“Sukkot is a holiday of joy and bounty! We give thanks for the Fall harvest, and we build sukkah, temporary huts. These are based on the huts our ancestors built in the fields during harvest time, but they can also symbolize spiritual protection and support. It is customary to eat meals in the sukkah during the week-long holiday, and to invite friends and neighbors to join us in rejoicing.
We invite you to celebrate with us by watching a sukkah being built, making decorations, learning about the symbolism of the lulav and the etrog, and more! Chag sameach! (Happy holiday!)”
Watch, Learn & Celebrate
At the heart of our Season of Reveling are hearth and home and, in that same spirit, Revelers Judy and David welcome us into their sukkah, to share traditional rituals and the symbols from the natural world that belong to this time of gratitude, hospitality, and celebration.
Learn to Make
A member of our 2020 Children’s Chorus — the Winter Solstice Children — teaches us how to make an apple that can be used to decorate a sukkah in this short video. It’s easy, fun and looks great, too. Give it a try!
