It was great to be with your children at Sunday School. Several of the children had attended services at were eager to share their experiences of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
We have moved from the reflective mood of the High Holidays to the celebratory character of Sukkot. Sukkot is a harvest festival during which we build or visit temporary huts called Sukkot (singular Sukkah). A Sukkah has branches for it’s roof and is decorated with fruits and vegetables. It is a mitzvah to invite guests to your Sukkah.
We are beginning our Hebrew studies with review of the Aleph Bet with games and songs. More on our Hebrew curriculum to come.
Next week we will celebrate Sukkot with the entire school. What a great way to acknowledge the many blessings we’ve been granted.
PS: Please ask your child what the original nightlights were.
