The Jewish religion celebrates The Festival of Sukkot to commemorate the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, living in temporary shelters made out of dry palms and branches. Throughout the holiday, meals are eaten inside the sukkah the Jewish families have built outside their homes each year and some people sleep there as well. The sukkah is reminiscence these fragile dwellings the Jewish people after their freedom from slavery in Egypt before they reached the Promised Land of Israel. Symbols from the past can help us remember what our ancestors did to gain our freedom.
