What do Toblerone packaging, a miniature violin, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) logo, a hamsa and pictures of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Rambam and Martin Luther King have in common? They are components in the Succat Ha’aliyot model succa, built in 2009 by Sue Tourkin Komet.

The impact of this compact, passionate, and energetic woman calling herself “Susie Succot” was felt by the many people whose lives she touched here from her aliya in 1968 until she died on January 4 (7 Tevet) after battling cancer.
