Sukkot

Get out your tents or grab your hammer and some nails, it’s time for Sukkot!

Known in English as the “Feast of the Tabernacles,” Sukkot is the happy time in the Jewish year where we live in temporary huts for 7 days (or at least eat meals in them) while celebrating the bounty of a new year.

Sukkot

Sukkahs are dressed up in a multitude of ways – drawings from children, pictures of famous rabbis, sheets and lights, each is as unique as each family!

The temporary huts represent our time in the wilderness after fleeing Egypt – the 40-year journey traveling through Sinai to the Holy Land of Israel. The holiday of Sukkot actually serves a dual meaning – firstly, the aforementioned religious journey out of Egypt and secondly, marking the end of the harvest time and agricultural year in the Land of Israel.

In Israel, most restaurants that remain open on Sukkot erect a tent outside their stores for people to eat in. There is nothing quite like leaving the office mid-day to grab a bite to eat and taking it into a Sukkah. 

There are plenty of tasty meals to eat during this time, as it’s a harvest festival so grains, veggies and foods of the land are all fair game. Check out our Sukkot recipes below.
