The Whole-School Holiday lessons make up a spiral curriculum, in which each lesson focuses on a different aspect of Jewish holiday, value, or key subject. With some exceptions, Whole School Holiday lessons are built around a matrix that allows students to have an unique experience each year.

Once a New York Times reporter stationed in Israel reported a problem when his Christian children wanted to build a sukkah because everyone they knew had one. This is the backdrop of this story. It deals not only with Christmas-tree envy, but with the positive aspects of building a sukkah. It is a story that is as much about identity as it is about custom. Building a sukkah as a family is a wonderful addition to the holiday. In this lesson we will learn about a family and their experiences during Sukkot.
