The chipper trio of engineers created by author Cohen and artist Kober return in a timely sequel. In this reprise, Engineer Ari builds a sukkah with his two railroad cohorts (one a woman), thanks to materials provided by friends along his Jaffa to Jerusalem train route. When he feels sad that these distant, helpful folk will not see his holiday booth, his fellow engineers surprise him by dismantling the sukkah from his backyard, rebuilding it on his train and providing a view to all along the tracks. The sweet tale rests on the historical truth of the first 1892 Israeli train. It teaches the components of a sukkah. In the endnote, the reader discovers that the friends who supply Ari are named in Hebrew for the three different branches in the lulav. Counting the number of times each person’s name appears, reveals how many of each branch is bundled in the lulav. The previous book is called Engineer Ari and the Rosh Hashanah Ride
