Hooray!  Sukkot is here – one of our favorite holidays.  Nava helped build the sukkah (as she did last year) and we took fun pictures.  If only I could find our camera charger so I can upload some of those pictures.  This year, as last year, we went to our relative’s houses and helped prune their trees for our schach (the fun leaves and branches that go on top of the sukkah).  Nava helped mallet the metal frame in place, and helped Abba put up all the leaves.  And she helped put up the decorations.  This year, we had a light!  Last year we ate in the dark.  Next year, Jerusalem….
