Rabbi Yaakov Salomon is right I build a sukka every year and i love it when people stop in, so realy if you see a sukka it's an invatation to come in and share in the simchah, joy. Happy Sukkos.

under a canopy of stars

Thank You for the invitation! Last year I had a deep yearning to be in a Sukka. I used to have my own, in my backyard. It was a kind of covered dog run but I called it my personal year round Sukka and it was hung with vines and other vegetation. Now it's no longer. Last year I went to the local synagogue and walked into the outdoor Sukka at night. No one was there and I so enjoyed being there, under the fruit, under the stars, and also there were charming drawings from children tacked to the sides. It felt so beautiful, so incomparably beautiful. Yes to the JOY of this holiday and thank You so much for making it feel so WElCOMING though I am not a part of any synagogue except life itself.

Wow ... very nice

Hey, thanks for the invite. I've never seen a sukkah in my town of Fredericton ... but if i see one this year, I'm going to avail myself of this invite. Exciting.

My dear neighbors construct a sukkot every year. They are a young family with two children who delight in asking the neighbora to visit with them. We note the joy and graciousness of this family as they share and extend this holiday to all the secular folks on the block.

Friends in a small town nearby have a beautiful organic farm. Each year all from the synagogue are invited to celebrate with them for a day during sukkot. The day is beautiful, the people are wonderful and the food is great. We dance, we eat, we shake the lulav and etrog. It is again with great joy Rabbi Salomon, that I look forward to this year. The film called "Ushpizin" is a way to see Sukkot celebrated in Israel with a story and message. You can rent it at the video store. It is a great movie and I watch it this time of year. Happy New Year to you and all at Aish.com.
