UJA-Federation of New York’s Scarsdale community shared the joy of the holidays by decorating a sukkah, the temporary shelter built in celebration of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, with seniors in the Bronx last week. The holiday began Wednesday, September 18th, this year and ended on Wednesday, September 25th. The sukkah was built at Kittay House, which is an independent senior living facility run by Jewish Home Lifecare, a UJA-Federation beneficiary agency.
