Building a Sukkah

Sukkot is celebrated in the Autumn and is similar to the Christian festival of Harvest.

It is a festival to remember when the Jewish people spent time in the wilderness when they escaped from Egypt.

To remember and celebrate Sukkot, Jews build a Sukkah. This is a special hut with a wooden frame.

The roof is made from branches and leaves because the stars can still be seen through them.

We tried to make our own Sukkahs for a Lego Man. It was very tricky but we all worked very well together.
