Sukkot 2018

The holiday of Sukkot is an incredibly child-friendly, experiential holiday where Jewish values and traditions are explored in a fun, sensory, inviting way. Sukkot begins on 9/23/18.  

In a sukkah "we surround our children (and ourselves) with something Jewish. In the mitzvah of sukkah, our children participate in building a miniature Jewish environment in which to dwell, if only for a short while. They participate with all their senses, with physical effort, with imagination and spirit. The mitzvah of sukkah is a special experience of immersion in Jewish culture.” –The Jewish Parents’ Almanac by Julie Hilton Danan
