Sukkot encounter - October 16th

The Galilee Women's group met in Misgav, in the big Sukkah of the town. Noga invited us and we came 5 women from Eilaboun and 4 from Bueine.

We were received by a group of women from the community, some of which are not part of our group but gave us and the group a lot of respect and joined their friends.

They received us with greetings and warmth, prepared for us a buffet full with special foods and did not forget the apple and the honey in honor of the new year that recently began.

After eating, Sima explained to the group about the Holiday, its food and customs, and about the Sukkah, its importance in this Holiday and what is symbolizes.

Many of the women did not know these things before!

Later we all went for a tour around the community. We saw different kinds of Sukkot and very beautiful decorations. It was a very nice atmosphere of celebration.
