DIY Judaism: Let's Practice Sukkot
Sukkot is one of the three Jewish pilgrimage festivals—that means very important! It’s fun for kids and adults alike. Imagine building a playhouse + decorating for an autumn festival + picnicking outside, and you’ve got Sukkot.
How do you get started with the fun? Come to a no-experience-needed gathering to learn about Sukkot. You’ll leave with several plans on how to make your own sukkah (hut or playhouse), recipes for yummy Jewish fall foods, and craft designs for decorations.
