Sukkot Giveaway #1: Chag Sukkkot Sameach Sukkah Banner

This week, I am excited to be hosting three quick give-aways in honor of Sukkot. Each sweepstakes will close on Wednesday night, with the winners of all three being announced on Thursday morning.

The Sukkah Project was so pleased with the KOAB response to the earlier sukkah banner giveaway (and to that awesome 5% off coupon code) that they offered to give away another banner to one lucky reader! Wow!

This gorgeous Chag Sukkot Sameach Banner will surely enliven any sukkah!

By renowned Israeli artist Baruch Nachshon (2008), the banner envisions Chag Ha’Sukkot in the age of Moshiach. (Retail value: $60.) The banner is printed with the latest silk-screen and dye sublimation techniques on colorful, weather-proof nylon fabric, and comes with dowel pockets with dowels for hanging.

If you would like to add this gorgeous banner to your sukkah, simply complete the instructions on the Rafflectopter below. The first entry is mandatory: Tell me what one person – past or present – you would invite to a meal in your sukkah. The other entries are optional – but the more you enter, the better your chances are of winning!

Disclaimer: The Sukkah Project will provide the banner to the winner KOAB reader. I was not otherwise compensated for running this giveaway.




  1. yes please!

  2. I know that I am supposed to be creative and pick some interesting historical figure to invite to my sukkah. But the truth is, I would invite my mother. I would love for her to meet her grandchildren

  3. Debbie Colby says:

    If I could have one special guest in my sukkah this year, it would be my mother. My mother passed away 10 months ago after a very brief illness. Needless to say, I miss her terribly.

    • As you can see from my comment above, I had a very similar thought.

      The haftarah that we read on the second day of Rosh Hashanah says, “Ki midei dabri bo zakhor eskarena od—whenever I speak of him, I remember him more and more.” When we remember, we bring to life all that was. I hope that your memories of your mother will bring you comfort.

  4. I would love to have my grandparents back in my sukkah!

  5. This is a beautiful banner! Hm, who would I invite….I think it would be my grandparents and my aunt who all passed away before any of my kids were born, but they would get such tremendous nachas out of them…

  6. Julie and Debbie – I’m sending you both big hugs. I’m so sorry for your losses.

  7. Not original, but I would also invte my grandmother. I would love her to meet my husband and kids. She would really love them.

  19. Myself, circa 2000. I have a lot of advice to dispense!! Also, I had a lot more energy back then, so I’d let 2000-me do all the cooking and cleaning.

  21. I would love to invite to my sukkah my father’s parents, of blessed memory, who I never had the privilege of knowing.

    I would invite menachem begin to be a guest in our sukkah. I would love my children to meet a modern day jewish hero -a man who may not have appeared to be a warrior but was a source of strength, faced the world with jewish pride and loved the jewish people. He was a survivor!

  43. My grandparents. Thankfully they are alive but live in Tulsa so I would love if they could come to Chicago, although they would hate the cold.

  44. I would invite my maternal grandparents. They never got a chance to meet my husband or see their great grandchildren. This is our first ever sukkah and we need all the decoration help we can get 🙂

  45. Good question… I never really thought of it, but if I could invite anyone in my Succa it would be Rivka Imenue. I always wanted to meet her.

  46. My mom, dad, and brother. I miss my entire family. We’ve now moved 1,500 miles away from my closest family member, and I miss them terribly. Now with a 2-year-old and a newborn baby, we can’t travel like we used to. So we must celebrate alone. I’d love to open up our sukkah to my whole family and welcome them to our new home.
