Kansas University sophomore Michael Lebovitz, Prairie Village, uses a nearby tree to tie down a sukkah, or temporary hut or shelter, outside the Kansas Union on Wednesday in recognition of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. According to Rabbi Zalman Tiechtel, executive director of the Chabad Center for Jewish Life, the eight-day holiday begins Wednesday night and lasts until Friday morning of the following week. Lebovitz explained that building the sukkah is a way for Jews to reconnect with their history.
