Sukkahs 2013

One of them was featured in the Boston Jewish Advocate on September 20, 2013 "And you shall dwell in Sukkahs for seven days." This year we featured sukkahs from Sharon, Easton, Mansfield, Natick and Lexington, Massachustts, Skokie, Illinois, Houston, Texas in the USA, Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, and Kiryat Yovel, Jersalem and Ramat Raziel, Israel. This includes the welcoming sukkah, the open sukkah, the sukkah in a swimming pool, and the sukkah on a roof.  We also added a new page about the Holiday of Sukkot.

In 2012 we had pictures from Kibbutz Sde Boker, Israel, Houston Texas, Sharon, Massachusetts, Melbourne,
Australia, 
Johannesburg, SA, and  Collegeville, PA. . A special feature from 2012 was a sukkah before and after it blew down- everyone made it out! or if they didn't no one is telling. The 2011 show includes a sukkah that resembles Joseph's coat of many colors and  Scotch in the Sukkah with the Men's club at Temple Israel Natick, MA. (Does it look like Scotch?) Talk about enjoying the holiday!

Neither the walls nor the roof. It is you. The biblical commandment does not say to build a sukkah, it says "you shall dwell in Sukkahs..."

If you need to bench Lulav and Etrog, they are ready for you at Bet Shira in Miami, FL
                                                       The most important word in the sentence is you. The commandment cannot be fulfilled without you. This year the emphasis is people both inside and out; the emphasis is on YOU! Best bet:double click  the pictures, then go  full screen to enlarge the slide shows! We are grateful to Dubi Gordon of Natick, MA for his networking and photography skills, and his hospitality. Dubi's sukkah appears on our site-and it appeared in the Boston Jewish advocate in 2010 after a consultation

Sukkahs 2010

 with sukkahsoftheworld.org Please note a special treat in 2010, a sukkah from Duxbury, MA.

Look at our photo archives for pictures from 2005-2009 and a video with benching of lulav and an etrog and an etrog box gallery.

"Ufros Alenu Sukkat Shlomacha Spread over us the tabernacle of thy peace" What a wonderful description of our relationship with G-d, and of the function of the Jewish holidays! The holidays and the sukkah let us  participate in that peace. 

Thanks to all who welcomed me into their sukkahs, and supplied photographs. I had a blast going from house to house. Sunday was sukkah open house day, and I usually knew the guests if not the owners. If you look carefully you will see me with my hands in the cookie jar!
