Many of our Jewish neighbors are celebrating Sukkot, a joyous harvest holiday referred to in Hebrew as Z’man Simchateinu (the time of our rejoicing).

An important part of the holiday is the sukkah, a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long festival and often topped with branches and decorated in a fall harvest theme. The sukkah symbolizes the frailty and transience of life and its dependence on God.
