We asked famous people in Israeli society to answer the question: If you had the opportunity to invite anyone to your Sukkah, who would you invite and why?
We received many interesting answers, and for a moment we got a glimpse into their personal lives and hidden desires. It was amazing to discover that the most prominent answer that was repeated over and over again was "Invite my grandfather and grandmother". In the end, everything comes back to family, tradition, the chain of generations, and the warmth that our childhood reminds us of.
