On the kibbutz, each neighbourhood has built its own Sukkah to commemorate the wandering of the Hebrews after fleeing from Egyptian slavery (Passover story – you know the one). The ‘mitzvah’ is to sleep in a Sukkah that is built with at least 3 free-standing walls and a roof made of branches through which you can see the stars.
It’s also the season of carob trees and I’ve set my brownies to half cocoa/half carob to push Autumn into showing her face.

In other news, there’s a collaborative art exhibit that is taking place on a number of Kibbutzim. Ceasefire is composed of photos, sculptures, videos and other artwork all to celebrate this time of ceasefire.
In the White House Gallery, Kibbutz Nir-Oz, we have a show of sculptures by a number of sculptors.
