Free and Open to the Public!
Bring a stuffed animal friend and join Holliston author Jane Kohuth for an interactive read-aloud of her new picture book, Who’s Got the Etrog?, a story about the Jewish harvest holiday Sukkot in the Abayudaya Jewish community in Uganda. Auntie Sanyu builds and decorates a sukkah harvest hut in her garden. On each of the holiday’s eight days a new guest comes to join the celebration — Warthog, Lion, Giraffe, Rhino, Camel, Parrot, and Auntie Sanyu’s niece Sara. They all want to shake the lulav branch and hold the fragrant etrog fruit, but Warthog just can’t seem to let it go. . . . Hear the story, shake a lulav and etrog, help decorate our sukkah fort, and learn more about the Abayudaya, one of the many diverse Jewish communities around the world.
