Happy Sukkot

IMG_1371-0

The holiday of sukkot begins tonight. During this holiday, we eat in a sukkah, and my husband also sleeps in the sukkah.

I thought for fun I would post some pictures of my husband and our friends building it and of our decorations.

Buddy helping to put together the frame of the sukkah.

Putting up the straps.

Attaching the canvas.

Adding the sekhakh (literally, covering).

Voila! Our sukkah!

Raizel’s sukkah decoration.

A friend sent me this funny picture about how much food we eat on the holiday. It was so funny, I just had to post it.

 

The sukkah is a temporary dwelling in which we are physically enveloped by a mitzvah and surrounded by God’s presence. Everything we do in the sukkah becomes an opportunity to connect with the Infinite.

It is a time of great rejoicing. With minutes to go before candle lighting, we wish everyone a good and beautiful yom tov!

With blessings,

Carol and family

    How beautiful that is (and I love Raizel’s Sukkah decoration best of all). The clock face made me laugh out loud. It is a beautiful concept to be surrounded by the Mitzvah – tangible ritual is so important for soul and spirit cleansing. 🙏🏼
