Educational Resources and Cool Videos for Sukkot

Hi Everyone!

Sukkot is the Jewish holiday that commemorates how protective "Clouds of Glory" surrounded the Jewish people after leaving Egypt during the forty years of wandering in the desert. It also commemorates how the Jews lived in temporary dwellings during that same time.
Sukkot begins Wednesday night, Sepetmber 22, 2010.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz
has 35 multiple choice questions about Sukkot.

What is the Hebrew date of the first day of Sukkot ?
What is another name for the Sukkot holiday ?
What does Sukkot commemorate ?
What is the minimum area of a Sukkah as defined in the Talmud ?
What is the maximum height of a Sukkah ?
What does the Aramaic word "Ushpizin" mean ?
Who gets called to the Torah reading on Simchat Torah ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings. Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.

Free Sukkot Clipart

Whether you need a picture for your child's class project, a graphic for your synagogue, Hillel or JCC Sukkot announcement, the Jewish Clipart Database has the pictures for you. You can copy, save and print the graphics in three different sizes.
