Sukkah Building & Exhibit

The holiday of Sukkot, the Feast of Booths, is an ancient festival that commemorates how the Israelites wandered for forty years in the wilderness before entering the Land of Canaan. For seven days, Jews eat and celebrate in huts called sukkot. They offer prayers of thanks, while shaking a lulav and etrog: a palm frond bound with myrtle and willow, and a citron (lemon).
