Master storyteller Eric A. Kimmel spins a tale of Sukkot just in time for the Jewish harvest festival.It was the season of Sukkot, the Jewish harvest festival. Two brothers each built a sukkah, or shelter, to celebrate and share in the gifts of the earth. One brother was very rich; the other brother was very poor. He built a sukkah of found materials and leftover goods, yet he invited all to share the holiday with him. When three mysterious guests visit each brother on Sukkot, they leave behind a special blessing that recognizes the generosity of the heart.
