Sukkot

Well, the 'jewish holiday season' is coming to a close soon. After Sukkot (the Thanksgivingesque holiday that celebrates the harvest) comes Simhat Torah (the celebration of being given the Torah, the old testament) and then, we're basically done until Hannukah.

 Tonight is the start of Sukkot, and in honor of the holiday we built a Sukkah. A sukkah is an outdoor (non-permanent) dwelling place, the roof is made out of a material (usually corn stalks or little tree branches) that is supposed to only cover up half of the roof (basically like a grid). This is so that you have a shelter, but you can still see the stars. I will have pictures of the construction of our Sukkah up soon, but in the meantime...

 I think tomorrows another cooking day!
