Kol Haskalah celebrated Sukkot with a presentation by our Sunday School’s Junior Division. We sang songs, learned about the holiday and shook the Lulav and Esrog.
A harvest holiday, Sukkot is often celebrated inside a sukka , a three-sided hut with a roof open to the sky, constructed especially for the event. Here families and communities are able to gather and eat a meal, share stories and enjoy the outdoors. For Humanistic Jews, Sukkot is a time to appreciate nature and the outdoors, and to celebrate Jewish identity with family and friends.
