Sukkot

Every fall we build a sukkah in the back yard, decorate with gourds and candles and small fig and pomegranate trees.


We eat our meals out here, read, knit, and enjoy the cool autumn weather.

Even out little pet wooden squirrel enjoys a sukkah.


Sukkot is my very favorite holiday. I'm always so sad to see it end!

Yeah, I love it too. During my near-conversion to Judaism, I feel in love with the story, meaning and ritual of Sukkot.

Also, that's a pretty nice sukkah. Well done.

Wonderful Sukkah! Every year I suggest that we build one and every year DH reminds me that I am allergic to most of the decorations used in our area. Rats! Maybe that's just his way of getting out of the building.

Hmm. I thought I knew about Judaism before I started visiting your blog, but obviously I'm clueless. Thanks for the links! I guess it wouldn't count to just plan an annual camping trip for the seven days of Sukkot?

Such a beautiful table. And how nice that you and your family can enjoy the holiday in that lovely spot!

That for a peak into your Sukkah. Ours is still up! It's a great holiday!

Thanks for the links. I learn so much from your links when you mention holidays/events or traditions that you celebrate! It helps to see it in practice too. Thanks again.
