Sukkot and Simchat Torah CJDS style!

What great fun was had by all celebrating Sukkot CJDS style!!!

  • Eating treats and lunch in the CJDS Sukkah as well as in the beautiful Federation Sukkah
  • Making the Bracha and then shaking the Lulav and Etrog set
  • Creating our very own edible Sukkot with a twist!
  • Did you know that it’s a Mitzvah to rejoice on Sukkot?! Well in order to help us rejoice even more than we already were, we were treated to a Sukkah hop field trip with Morah Sheina! Ask your child how much fun he/she had hopping from Sukkah to Sukkah and the activities we did in each Sukkah.

Last but not least, in honor of Simchat Torah we got to literally scroll through a small Torah to find the END as well as the BEGINNING of the Torah! We also got to make our edible Torah complete with “parchment”, “ink”, “crowns”, “atzei chaim” (wooden poles) and a “chagorah” (belt)!

Celebrating all these holidays feels like we’re running in a Holiday Marathon!!!!

Hope this gives you a little picture of our celebrations!!!!
