Rabbi Benny Zippel stood behind a mobile sukkah as he explained the significance of the structure and the customs associated with Sukkot — a holiday observed in Judaism.

Zippel — who is the executive director of Chabad Lubavitch of Utah — came from Salt Lake City to Lundstrom Park Thursday afternoon at the behest of Ronen Sebag, a Jewish Cache Valley resident who wanted a chance to share his culture and traditions with his neighbors just as his neighbors had shared theirs with him and his family. Those interactions have given Sebag a deep respect for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
