HOUSTON – Right now the Jewish community is celebrating Sukkot, a harvest holiday where families build a temporary home outside their house and stay there for a week.
For one Houstonian family this has become all too real after Harvey.
KHOU 11 News went to a Sukkah in Bellaire with a family that was displaced by Harvey and is now living there as a temporary home.
The idea of a Sukkah after Harvey in Houston has taken a whole new meaning for families. For the Zaklikofsky’s, it's one of unity and what's really important.
They were displaced by the hurricane over a month ago and now they’re living here. This experience has really proven to show the real meaning of Sukkot – which is to take everything that makes up a home and cherish that for what it is – outside the material house.
