A petting zoo, craft tables, and a BMX Bike Show were among the activities enjoyed by a variety of teens Sunday as the Friendship Circle hosted a Sukkah Party in the parking lot of The Chabad House in West Hartford.
Friendship Circle, which is run by Chabad, is a unique program that partners high school students with special needs buddies “in a seamless circle of friendship” for shared experiences.
The Jewish holiday of Sukkot is a joyful holiday that begins five days after Yom Kippur. During the joyous eight-day festival, Jews traditionally eat in a temporary dwelling called a Sukkah that is built of something that grew in the ground such as branches or bamboo.
