First Day of Sukkot
In what is now the world’s second largest Jewish city, you can wander into communities of the devout and see little booths crowding the balconies, patios, and fire escapes. Each one is a sukkah, built in honor of the joyous weeklong holiday of Sukkot. Underneath the organic roofs of these huts, the faithful celebrate the Feast of the Tabernacles, in honor of the 40 years in the wilderness that followed the exodus from Egypt. Here at Beautiful New York, we wish a very happy Sukkot to all our Jewish neighbors!
