Here’s our sukkah with only one whole side up and two half sides.
Here it is with all four sides up (or 3 and 3/4 sides), but no schach on the top. The schach needs to be there for it to be a kosher sukkah.
This is the painting of Jerusalem I did directly on the sukkah wall about nine years ago.
Lots of fish! Saved over the years from each child, the children did this craft of a fish swallowing a man before Yom Kippur as a way to learn about the Book of Yonah. One of my children must have done it in both nursery and kindergarten, as I only have three children.
One of my favorite details of the sukkah are these grapes I painted into the corner one year.
If you have been reading my blog recently, you may remember this post of my gourd/squash that was growing in my front yard. Now the vine is gone, and all the remaining gourds are hanging from the sukkah.
We will be eating all of our meals in the sukkah until next Monday. The “yom tov” part of Sukkot lasts for us until Wednesday night, so I won’t be going online until maybe Thursday morning. I look forward to hearing from you, whether you celebrate this holiday or not!
