Sukkot at The Watermark

September 28 2018
Sukkot is a week long Jewish holiday that comes five days after Yom Kippur. Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest. The Watermark celebrates this special holiday by decorating the Sukkah (a foliage covered booth), baking unique cookies, and sharing a special ceremony over the Lulav and Etrog. The Lulav and Etrog are made of important parts. The meaning of the Etrog refers to the heart, the place of understanding and wisdom. The palm refers to the backbone. The myrtle indicates the eyes, enlightenment. While the willow represents the lips. “Give thanks for nature around us in this time of harvest.”
