Sukkot begins five days after Yom Kippur and is named after the booths or huts (sukkot in Hebrew) in which Jews are supposed to dwell during this week-long celebration. It is one of the three major pilgrimage festivals of ancient Israel.
Sukkot is a very exciting time at Kol Ami. Our teenagers are available to assist families in building their own sukkah while our younger children decorate the Congregation’s sukkah. Young and old join together on Erev Sukkot for a fun filled evening of more sukkah decorating, crafts, music, dinner and services.
Learn how to build your own Sukkah, easy, cheap and fast. Photos and a shopping list are included.
