Why This Sukkah? A Meditation

Lamah Sukkah Zu? – Why This Sukkah?

“Why have we built this sukkah?” the little child asks.
“So that we can play in it forever,” his smiling daddy replies.

“Why have we built this sukkah?” the adventurous boy asks.
“So that we can explore the earth together,” his caring dad replies.

“Why have we built this sukkah?” the questioning youth asks.
“So that we can remember the hungry and homeless,” his loving father replies.

“Why have we built this sukkah?” the young man asks.
“So that we may recall our youth and our love,” his wistful old man replies.

“Why do we build this sukkah?” the new father asks.
“So our dreams may last forever,” the proud grandfather replies.
