This work was made during the 2009 celebration of Sukkot for the Lubavitch in Crown Heights, NY. Sukkot is an annual jubilee that celebrates harvests and the 40 years that were spent wandering the desert with Moses, living in temporary shelters. Every year at this time, families build their own temporary shelters to eat and drink in and to entertain their guests within. L’Chaim comes from a common toast “to life” made during this time.
