#1 62 years old, I am still such a babe in the woods. When I clicked on this story earlier, I honestly thought from the word Sukkah it must be some hip hop thang.

#3 To the media it's just nowhere near as hip as the Bath House fambly's Chairman Mao Christmas tree ornaments.

#4 I didn't know. And the spelling is a bit different.

What is Sukkot?

Sukkot (Feast of Booths or Tabernacles) is one of the three biblically based pilgrimage holidays known as the shalosh regalim It is an agricultural festival that originally was considered a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest. Sukkot are hut-like structures that the Jews lived in during the 40 years of travel through the wilderness after the exodus from Egypt. As a temporary dwelling, the sukkah also represents the fact that all existence is fragile, and therefore Sukkot is a time to appreciate the shelter of our homes and our bodies.

How is Sukkot celebrated?

Sukkot is celebrated by, first of all, building a sukkah. Jews are required to eat in the sukkah for eight days (seven days in Israel), and some even sleep in the sukkah for the duration of the holiday. The sukkah is decorated and the first day is considered a holy day in which most forms of work are forbidden. The rabbis dictated that arbat ha’minim (four species) should be held together and waved during the holiday. These are based on four plants mentioned in the Bible, and the rabbinic version includes the following: etrog (fruit of the citron tree), lulav (palm frond), hadas (leaves from the myrtle tree), and aravah (leaves from the willow tree). This waving ceremony was performed at the Temple in the ancient world.

The seventh day of Sukkot is called Hoshanah Rabah. On that day in the synagogue Jews circle the room seven times while the arbat ha’minim are held and special prayers are recited.

#7 I am still such a babe in the woods.

So long as you understand the details of your faith, JHH, you needn’t feel bad about knowing the less important details of someone else’s. I’ve been Jewish all my life, and never once put up a sukkah, though we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the ones we helped decorate at our synagogue and the local Jewish community center over the years.

The different spellings in the article and Bobby’s link result from the fact that the Chabad chassids who put up the one at the White House use old-fashioned Ashkenazi pronunciation and transliteration. Bobby’s link uses modern, Israeli Hebrew, which developed from the Sepharadi (Middle Eastern) pronunciation and transliteration.

#10 Temple Broth-El

Could it be a misspelling? Beth El (House of God) is a common name for synagogues... Or perhaps a play on chicken soup?
