Once a New York Times reporter stationed in Israel reported a problem when his Christian children wanted to build a sukkah because everyone they knew had one. This is the backdrop of this story. It deals not only with Christmas-tree envy, but with the positive aspects of building a sukkah. It is a story that is as much about identity as it is about custom. Building a sukkah as a family is a wonderful addition to the holiday. In this lesson we will learn about a family and their experiences during Sukkot.
