Celebrate Sukkot in a sukkah with 'The League'
Sukkot, the Jewish Biblical holiday that is one of the three pilgrim festivals, began in 2011 on Wednesday (Oct. 12). Traditionally, the first day is a sabbath-like yom tov when work is forbidden, followed by five intermediate days of music and dancing celebrations and a final day with a special worship service.
For the holiday, traditionally a "sukkah" is constructed - a walled structure with an organic roof in which celebrators eat their meals and sometimes even sleep. So guess who is building a sukkah on TV Thursday night? The men of "The League," naturally.
Ruxin wants to get baby Geoffrey into a Jewish pre-school, so he enlists his buddies to help him throw a last-minute Sukkot gathering and construct a sukkah, even though he really isn't much of a practicing Jew. Shenanigans ensue.
