Celebrating Sukkot in Israel



Sukkot is celebrated in Israel in many of the same ways we celebrate it here in the United States. The Sukkah is built, the Lulav is shaken, meals are shared and communities spend time together. See how the Reform congregations in Israel are celebrating the holiday this year!
