Tribeca’s Jewish Community Project, better known as J.C.P., celebrated Sukkot Sunday with a free block party outside their Duane St. center. The holiday, which celebrates the harvest, also helps commemorate the Jews’ 40 years in the desert when they often lived in makeshift huts or booths known as Sukkahs. J.C.P. set up a Sukkah outside its home (opposite page) and children also made their own tastier huts with graham crackers held together with icing.
