Sukkot, knows as the Feasts of Booths, is a seven day Jewish holiday typically celebrated in the fall. A major part of the holiday is constructing a sukkah – a walled structure covered with plant material, such as tree branches. Many people eat their meals and even sleep in their sukkah. A sukkah, according to custom, is typically decorated on the inside with hanging decorations. Many Synagogues have a sukkah that you can visit. Here are a few we’ve selected:
