COLORADO SPRINGS — This week is the Jewish festival of Sukkot.
It started last Sunday and runs until this Sunday evening.
During Sukkot, Jews build huts made of straw to honor the structures in which the Israelites lived when they fled Egypt.
Rabbi Moshe Librow of Chabad Lubavitch in Colorado Springs spoke about the significance of this festival.
Sukkot lasts until this Sunday evening.
The next major Jewish festival, Passover, is in the second week of April.
