We are in the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot as it is also know. It is eight days long. The first and last day is a high shabbat, and no work is to be done. It is a time of joy, dancing and happiness. We build sukkah, temporary dwellings and we should sleep in them. This is to remind us that God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, out of captivity. The children had fun building different types of temporary dwellings. They slept in them last night with their dad. As I was ill I slept inside.
