We had a fun day learning about Sukkot and Ahavat Olam.
We learned about the mitzvah of building a sukkah right after Yom Kippur. We learned the blessings of Sukkot, the four different species that we take to the Sukkah and what each one represent and how they are tied together, just as, we, the children of Israel should be. We also learned about the mitzvah of inviting guests – Ushpizin and who they are.
We talked a bit about the last day of Sukkot being Simchat Torah.
We had fun decorating some pine cones that we hung in the Sukkah.
