Sukkot edd

Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts," refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai. Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur and is marked by several distinct traditions. One tradition, which takes the commandment to "dwell in booths" literally, is to build a sukkah, a booth or hut. Kadima erects a sukkah in the back yard of Kadima House and hosts a potluck dinner, conversation, and sing-along in the sukkah.

SukkahFest3 edd

Kadima's Sunday School rocks out Sukkot at its annual SukkahFest, a team sukkah-building contest. Each team is commended for the distinct characteristics of its sukkah. If it is a dry morning, SukkahFest is held outdoors. If it is raining, we move the fun indoors.
