The Very Best Sukkah: A Story from Uganda

Read about this new illustrated book written by Shoshana Nam­bi, a young Ugandan woman who has studied in Israel and is currently doing rabbinic studies in the US. She recently spoke at Kulanu US’s High Holiday Zoom event.

Here’s a basic description of the storyline:

“Sukkot is Shoshi’s favorite Jewish holiday. She and her brothers love to decorate their sukkah, the hut where her family will celebrate. But who will win the Ugandan Abayudaya community’s annual sukkah contest? While only one sukkah can be the best, everybody wins when neighbors work together.”
