Judaism must believe in the old adage, “When it rains, it pours” — at least when it comes to the fall holidays. Just after Rosh Hashanah came and went, Yom Kippur was here ten days later. And, like clockwork, five days later and we find ourselves at Sukkot.
The harvest festival, which begins this Wednesday at sundown, is a week-long celebration often spent outdoors in sukkahs, or temporary dwellings. So, in order to prepare yourselves for what just might be your kids’ favorite holiday (I mean, you get to decorate a fort!), we’ve got a little quiz that covers the basics of Sukkot.
Be sure to take it today, because pretty soon it will be Simchat Torah and Sukkot will be so last week.
