Sukkot, starting Wednesday night, is the Jewish holiday with a focus on hospitality. Many Jews step out of their everyday homes to eat and sometimes sleep in temporary structures outdoors. There they often welcome guests throughout the week enjoying good food, good company and evenings under the stars. According to legend, a different Biblical figure visits one’s sukkah on each night of the holiday. To add to your festivities, we share this inspiring book: The Mysterious Guests. A Sukkot Story, a tale of two brothers, one generous, and one less so and the value of hospitality.
