Sukkot Thoughts... building a sukkah


Join us for a Sukkot Hike this Saturday at 10 am - 12 noon on Flagstaff Mountain. Co-led by Reb Tirzah Firestone and Rabbi Jamie Korngold.

Sukkot is a great holiday with one major flaw. Timing.

The minute Yom Kippur is over we are literally supposed to grab hammer and nails and start building a sukkah. The moment Yom Kippur is over, all I want to do is go to sleep for about a week, preferably in a very comfortable bed.

Now for those of you who have already built your sukkah and are enjoying dinners under the full moon, I applaud you. Feel free to skip to the end.

For the rest, perhaps one of the following rings true?

* I am too busy to build a sukkah

* A pre-fab sukkah costs how much?

* Why would I own a hammer and nails?

Fortunately, there are many magnificent ways to celebrate Sukkot without a sukkah.

The main intentions of the holiday are to:

1. Reunite us with the ancient Israelites wilderness experience

2. Remind us of our agrarian roots.

During the week of Sukkot, try to do an outdoor activity each day and consciously link it to Sukkot.

Here are some suggestions:

1. Take a Sukkot hike. (I`m leading one this Saturday)

2. Ready your garden for winter

3. Invite a friend to an autumn picnic at a local park.

4. Light Shabbat candles on your porch.

5. Visit a pumpkin farm.

6. Go camping.

7. Snuggle up under the covers with my book, God in the Wilderness, which is full of Jewish lessons we can learn from nature.
Wishing you and yours a joyous Sukkot.

See you on the trail,
