Hey everyone — I am happy to report that we are celebrating yet another holiday here in Israel! Sukkot just began, and for those of you who maybe don’t know, Sukkot is the holiday where we eat in booth-type structures called sukkahs. This holiday is one of the three pilgrim festivals that we celebrate, alongside Passover and Shavuot. Sukkot lasts for seven days, and most of the city is pretty quiet on both the first two and last two days of the holiday.

Here at Budokan, we came together as a family and built our very own sukkah, and tonight we had our very first meal in it! It is a nice tradition, eating under the stars, in a cozy shelter with family and friends.

Above are a few pictures of the construction of the sukkah and then one picture of my friend Jeremy and me eating in the sukkah!

Happy Sukkot everyone!

My name is Jaime, and I am setting out on my first real adventure into the world. I am headed 9500km away to Israel to take part in a five-month intensive martial arts and fitness program! I have never really had much experience in martial arts, so this should prove to be, if nothing more, a really awesome and unique experience. After the program commences, I plan to stay and explore Israel and surrounding countries. Follow me along on my journey!
