Festival of Sukkot is Saturday, October 3rd to Friday, October 9th
Immediately following Yom Kippur, it is customary to begin building and decorating a Sukkah -- a temporary outdoor structure to spend time and have meals during the Festival of Sukkot.
You can build a Sukkah! For months, we have been confined to our homes. Building a sukkah transforms your deck or yard (anywhere under the stars) into a special, sacred space. It is the perfect project and positive home experience for this moment.
There are Sukkah kits and instructions at every price point and building skill level. Google "DIY Sukkah" or "Sukkah kit" to build your own. Need advice, encouragement, or some helping hands? Rabbi Noah wants to know! email him at rabbinoah@koldorot.org.
