If you go all in and adopt sukkah living this week, I think it may be bad karma because the weather has just this week become much cooler. More likely, you probably visit and reside there in spirit rather than in fact. I have experienced both; each is unique and recommended.
Regardless of your choice and length of the experience, there are many ways to have fun with it. And to that end, I share a a Sukkot crafts roundup to decorate your sukkah with children and grandchildren and more ideas for Sukkot crafts and activities on Pinterest. Chag Sameach.

What is a Trunk of Tolerance?

It’s a free source of materials that teachers can borrow to enhance their existing Holocaust curriculum. It is another tool to teach students tolerance and encourage them to be active resistors to prejudice.
