Make holiday decorations for the Sukkah
Come join the kiddos from the Wolk Children’s Center to together make decorations for the holiday of Sukkot. Sukkot is a harvest festival that commemorates the memory of the Israelites seeking shelter in temporary huts while wandering in the desert after the Exodus from Egypt.
After all the seriousness of Yom Kippur, Sukkot is a time to kick back and have a party. In blessings, Sukkot is referred to as “z’man simchateinu”, which translates as the time of our celebrating, and since the holiday lasts seven days, there’s plenty of time to enjoy. Sukkot is all about not taking things for granted, and it’s a time to give thanks, particularly for food and shelter. Sukkot is named after the booths or huts (sukkot in Hebrew) in which Jews are supposed to dwell during this week-long celebration.
