I have been building Sukkahs for 27 years. It was my mother’s pride and joy that she had a daughter who 1, had a private house so they could build a sukkah, and 2, had enough Jewish identity to bother. When she died right after Yom Kippur and before Sukkot,, that means I would never stop building one. Here are a few from my past. They have gotten more feminine as time went by and my boys moved elsewhere.

And here is a passage from my book about what happened the first time Leonard and I built a Sukkah.

" Two hawks were circling above us. Then they mated. Two great sets of wings became one as the raptors plummeted downward, breaking apart and taking wing again less than five feet from the ground. Len and I held hands and watched as they flapped back up into the sky. I felt it was my father, whose last name meant eagle, was sending me a sign."
