During Sukkot, we customarily invite famous people from the past to be guests in the sukkah. This year, I would like to invite Jesus as my guest.
Jerusalem is home to a unique type of sukkah: precarious and cantilevered, they hang off the sides of buildings – and between the two Jerusalems, one above, one below.
As Jews the world over construct their own sukkahs - temporary, walled, outdoors structures with a view of the sky - we've rounded up a few especially impressive versions.
In the spirit of Sukkot and the sukkah, the Reform Jewish community is mobilizing throughout the country to pass a clean Dream Act of 2017.
Many communities still need our help In that spirit, here are a couple of ideas you can do with your kids, also with what you probably already have at home.
Before we left the house as kids, my dad always asked, “Is everybody happy?” Learn what Jewish tradition has to say about happiness.
The sukkah is a symbol of fragility. We build the temporary structure each year and know that it is only meant to last for the week-long holiday. It sways in the breeze. The raindrops land inside. The animals nibble at our decor. We know it could come crashing down on us.
