Nitzanim Explore Sukkot and Ivrit!

We also continued exploring סוכות (Sukkot)!  After some of us got to make our own, miniature or collapsable sukkot, today the whole group worked together to build one sukkah for our room.

A roof made of leaves; walls made of blankets and wood; decorations (children suggested apples, bananas and pairs as the fruit they would hang in their sukkah); stars and a moon to see through the roof; and a table and chairs for our guests.

Here is what we have built so far:
