A Gorgeous Day to Decorate the Sukkah

A sukkah is a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot. It is topped with branches and often well decorated with autumnal, harvest or Judaic themes commemorating the time God provided for the Israelites in the wilderness they inhabited after they were freed from slavery in Egypt. It is common for Jews to eat, sleep and otherwise spend time in the sukkah. In Judaism, Sukkot is considered a joyous occasion and the sukkah itself symbolizes the frailty and transience of life and its dependence on God. Here at The Watermark at 3030 Park, a few of the residents and associates decorated their Sukkah and had a beautiful day to do so. Today they are eating breakfast and lunch inside and enjoying the meaning of the tradition.
