Sukkot began on October 4th and ends the evening of October 11th
What to do with this wonderful week ahead of you?
As Anita Diamant says, “Sukkot is an opportunity and excuse for a seven-day picnic.”
Here are a few things you can try to bring the holiday to life.
- Eat one or more meals outside.
- Decorate your eating area with fall leaves, branches, little pumpkins, squash, apples, and other harvest symbols.
- Plan a family outing to a farmer’s market to find recently harvested fruits and veggies.
- Make a harvest-themed centerpiece; simply group your farmer’s market finds with fall leaves in a basket.
