Sukkot 2012

In Judaism, the sukkah is a temporary structure that symbolizes shelters in which the Israelites dwelt during 40 years of travel in the desert after leaving Egypt. This year’s GIC sukkah was felled prematurely by unusually high winds, but not before serving as┬áthe focal point of a joyful interfaith celebration of Sukkot on Sunday, kicking off the week-long harvest festival that follows the solemn Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
