Sukkot celebrates the harvest. It comes in autumn when the leaves fall ...
and apples and pumpkins ...
are ripe and ready to pick.
It's time to build our sukkah. We connect the boards, tighten the screws ...
and lift the frame up high.
Michael and Tali are stringing colored beads and pasta to decorate our sukkah.
Look at Ruby's silly fingers!
Let's make a sukkah for our classroom, too.
How many of us can fit inside?
