Sukkot, or the “Feast of Booths,” follows the Jewish High Holidays as a harvest festival and celebration of the Exodus from Egypt. For seven days, meals are taken only in the Sukkah, which is a hut whose roof of palm fronds, branches, reeds, or bamboo protects the dweller from the weather. Its purpose is to remind members of Judaism that they are merely travellers in this world and that their home is not permanent. The Sukkah was constructed by Union Chabad.
