Dublin Core

Title

Poem "Inside the Sukkah"

Description

In this poem, the narrator claims that Jewish people always live in sukkot (plural form of sukkah), defined at the end of the piece as "a small tent built for a week of meals and prayer to celebrate the Jewish harvest holiday of Succoth." It references a history of Jewish persecution, which includes pogroms, ghettos, and the Holocaust. The poem applauds the resilience of Jewish people who have rebuilt their sukkot and have not forgotten their heritage.
