On October 12 we observed Sukkot. Like every year, the sukkah was waiting for the guests in the courtyard of the Community. The youngest members had a lot of fun - divided in two groups they had to decorate the sukkah with branches, leaves and reeds. The children became acquainted with the four species characteristic of Sukkot: Etrog (the fruit of a citron tree), Lulav (a ripe, green, closed frond from a date palm tree), Hadass (boughs with leaves from the myrtle tree) and Aravah (branches with leaves from the willow tree). Then in the sukkah we recited the prayer for the sukkah:
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu leshev basukkah.
