7TH GRADE TEACHER
Hi my name is Leora Javaheri-far and the 16th of Tishri is so special to me, it is the second day of Sukkot. As a child Sukkot was my favorite Jewish holiday and I have so many good memories of watching my dad and my brothers build a sukkah in our backyard, as my sisters and I prepared the decorations. My Mom always made a special meal for us to have in the sukkah which became kind of traditional for the whole family.
Later on in life some unpleasant thing happened during Sukkoth in my family that fainted the joy of this important Holliday for me, but when I became a mother for the very first time in my life (when my first son was born) the happiness and joy came back to life, now 16th of Tishri, second day of Sukkoth is one of the most important dates in my life.
