Learn how to build and decorate a sukkah – and even make your own mini-sukkah in a free workshop held at The Home Depot in Coral Springs.
Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning “booths” or “huts,” refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest. It also commemorates the 40 years of Jewish wandering in the desert after the giving of the Torah atop Mt. Sinai.
Sukkot is celebrated five days after Yom Kippur on the 15th of the month of Tishrei, and is marked by several distinct traditions. One, which takes the commandment to dwell in booths literally, is to erect a sukkah, a small, temporary booth or hut. Sukkot (in this case, the plural of sukkah) are commonly used during the seven-day festival for eating, entertaining and even for sleeping.
On Sept. 25, from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., the Orloff Central Agency for Jewish Education and PJ Library will conduct the Sukkah Building workshop at The Home Depot, 750 N. University Drive in Coral Springs.
The event is free and all are welcome.
