Thankful Thursday - Sukkot 5777

This is a photo of the moon on the night of our Sukkot celebration. 

The High Holy Days are past, along with Feast of Tabernacles and Simchat Torah.  All of this, plus the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, and the election have made for a very busy  two months. 

So many blessings and photos to share with you, Gail-Friends, that I may have to break this up into two posts. 

After some teaching about Sukkot, we enjoyed some singing and dancing.
Then, it's time to build the sukkah. We used bamboo from the backyard of the Golden Cottage.

This year, we tried something a bit different -- a bamboo screen to wrap around three of the walls.

TA-DA!  I think it turned out really well, don't you?

Then, it's time to decorate. It was a great joy to have our daughter's decorating expertise. :)

Even the little ones can help.

On Sukkot, we wave the lulav.  Everybody in the congregation gets their turn.

And then, it's time to eat, and boy did we have some good food. 

We have some really good cooks at Ma'gen Da'vid.

The High Holy Days are my favorite time of the year, and Sukkot is the most joy and fun filled.  If you celebrated Sukkot, I'd love to hear about it in the comments below.  

Next week, I'll share about Simchat Torah and some of the other happenings at the Golden Cottage.
