+ Holiday happenings
Abbie Mount, a fourth-grader at Temple Emanu-El, waves the lulav during recent Sukkot festivities. Children learned about the significance of the lulav, branches of palm, myrtle and willow leaves bound together, and the etrog, a sweet-smelling citrus fruit ceremonially waved during Sukkot. In keeping with Sukkot’s emphasis on appreciating the beauty of the natural world, the celebrations took place in Temple Emanu-El’s sukkah, a temporary outdoor dwelling with open sides and roof, constructed especially for the holiday. Children decorated the sukkah with paper chains, fruit and original drawings.
