Building a Sukkah
Just as we did last year, we helped build a sukkah at a JARC home. Sukkot is a Jewish holiday where meals are eaten in a shelter outside of the home. The walls can be build of anything, but the roof must be made of some kind of organic material (branches, palm fronds, etc) and it's customary to decorate the inside of the sukkah with drawings or other kinds of artwork and hanging decor (usually the kids' favorite part!). This year it was a real group effort. The residents helped each step of the way and we all had a great time!
