THE SUKKAH SUKKOT-A-PALOOZA During this holiday, families eat all meals, study Torah, and unless it becomes very uncomfortable, sleep in the Sukkah. Much like a Christmas tree, decorating the Sukkah is a special activity for families to participate in together.

Families build ing the Sukkah. Made with natural materials strong enough against steady wind a Sukkah, a basic walled structure, to eat, pray, and sometimes even sleep in for seven days. * 2 complete & 1 partial walls Roof made of leaves and branches that allow more shade than sun and makes the night sky visible. The Sukkah's purpose is to replicate the type of fragile dwellings the Israelites lived in during their 40 years of travel in the desert after their exodus from slavery in Egypt. This is why Sukkot is the "Festival of Boothes". Decorating the inside of one's Sukkah is common practice and definitely encouraged. Seasonal vegetables, as well as artwork done by the children of the family, are hung from the roof and walls.
