Sukkot is a seven-day festival which is celebrated by building Sukkah huts and waving the “Four Species” each day. Sukkot is one of the joyous holidays in Judaism. This is the best time to show God our strong faith and complete trust in him.

The week of Sukkot is celebrated with the families spending time inside the sukkah. A sukkah is a replica of the huts where our ancestors lived during the 40 years that they have wandered in the desert. We are also reminded by building a sukkah that God will protect us the way he protected the Israelites in the desert.

The holiday is also considered a harvest festival. It is common practice to decorate the sukkah with agricultural crops like corn, squash and vegetables. Building and decorating the sukkah is a great way to bond with the family.
